Inside this neoclassical Victorian building resides one of Britain’s oldest museums. The first floor is dedicated entirely to a natural history collection of amazing variety.
The Bristol Museum’s natural history collection consists of paleontological and geological specimens, as well as botanical and skeletal exhibits. However, it’s the taxidermy specimens that leave visitors in awe. Among the collection is an impressive, yet eerie aye-aye lemur from Madagascar, the extinct Tasmanian thylacine, and a snarling Bengal tiger shot by King George IV on a hunting expedition to Nepal in 1911.
