Calling all explorers!

Come on an expedition to see how animals and plants survive in extreme heat, cold, dryness and constant darkness or with little oxygen in our new family friendly exhibition.

See some of the animals that live in these environments, watch films that make you shiver, feel the air-conditioning inside an ostrich’s beak, try to keep up with the drinking speed of a camel or see how much fat you have compared with a seal.

Extremes mixes hands-on experiences including games and experiments, with films and taxidermy animal specimens. This exhibition is in three languages – English, Spanish and French.

Ticket prices: £3.30 Child, £6.60 Adult, £16.50 Family (prices include 10% voluntary Gift Aid donation)

Tickets are on sale now and can be booked below. Horniman Members go free.

Please note: Extremes opens to the public from 12.30pm on Saturday 15 February 2014.
