Curious Creatures explores the many ways in which the Victorians interacted with and sometimes exploited animals. Focussing on the period 1810-1914, the exhibition looks at ethical issues about our relationship with nature that are still relevant today.

Objects on display in Curious Creatures will include taxidermy animals and items made from animal skin or bone. Due to the nature of the exhibition content, visitors may find that they are unsettled whilst uncovering the stories of animal treatment in the Victorian era. 

Get ready to meet a gallery of pet lovers, lion tamers, pigeon fanciers, colonial hunters, offal eaters, feather-hat wearers and more at Abbey House Museum in 2022.

Keep an eye on our what’s on page for accompanying events and activities throughout the year.
