Project 6: Curious Specimen in a Jar
Calling all young Dr Frankensteins… we are looking for the most weird and wonderful Curious Creature Specimens to exhibit at Ilfracombe Museum!
Pip & Kim are fascinated by the things in jars at Ilfracombe Museum. We have some intriguing specimens; some will make you go “Wow!” others might make you go “Eeeyuck”, like the collection of bats and a kitten born with two heads! Pip & Kim would love you to create your own curious specimen in a jar and we will pick our favourites to be displayed in the Museum’s Cabinet of Curiosities!
Just watch our ‘how to’ video or download the activity sheet below and when you have finished your specimen in a jar – don’t forget to give it a silly name! – share a photo of it with us by email to email@example.com or on our Facebook page @ilfmuseum or Instagram @Ilfracombe_Museum.
Open to all ages. Closing date Sunday 21 June 2021. If your Curious Specimen is selected for exhibition, we will display it in the Museum from July to the beginning of September and award you with an Ilfracombe Museum Certificate of Authenticity, a free family ticket to the Museum. Your specimen will be returned to you at the end of the exhibition.
