Wild Night at the Museum

Museum of Barnstaple & North Devon

With Caroline Preston, Origami Artist and Beaford Arts Education Leader

And Steve Eddy of Exmoor Zoo

FREE Family Event

A special chance to encounter the creatures of twilight as dusk approaches at the museum.

Discover mysterious night-flying mini beasts from the museum’s stores – and see why the scientists of the past collected them.

Make silhouette shapes of spectacular moths and beastly bugs and add them to our wildlife showcase. Then tag your own wildlife sightings on our map of North Devon.

And as the sun sets over the River Taw, get up close and personal with live bugs and insects from Exmoor Zoo – and find out what creatures we’ve caught in our moth trap in the museum garden.
