Those booked on to this event will have access to the museum from 9.30 am and they will be able to meet some friends from Animal Story between 10.00 – 11.00 am before the general public can meet them. There will be many friends to meet including a pygmy hedgehog, blue tongued skink and a red foot tortoise.

You can download a Visual Story for the museum which may help prepare those who have not attended before for their visit.
