Tours of the GNM:Hancock Collections

Indoor Event,
Discovery Museum, Newcastle.

The Society has 1/2 million items in its collections from Dodo bones to Egyptian mummies and most of these are held in special stores in the basement of Newcastle’s Discovery Museum.

The museum curators have kindly agreed to lead tours of these collections exclusively for Society members. This is a fantastic opportunity to see material that is not on display and to learn about the items and their care first hand.

These tours are free but you must book in advance as numbers are limited. To book places please contact the Society office.

13.30 – 14.30 Minerals and fossils
13.30 – 14.30 Ethnography and World Cultures
