​Bare Bones: The fascinating world of animal skeletons

From 28 August – 7 October

Derby Museum & Art Gallery

Suitable for all. Entry is FREE!

The first vertebrates appeared 525 million years ago. Since then they have evolved into a vast array of animals of all shapes and sizes. From the tiny Papua New Guinea frog which measures only 7.7mm in length to the blue whale which grows to over 30 metres. Bare Bones explores the form and function of the skeleton in animal physiology. This family-friendly exhibition looks at the adaptation and the evolution of species by examining skeletal anatomy.
