Centred round five environmental extremes – heat, cold, aridity, permanent darkness and lack of oxygen – and the animals and plants that live there.
Films, photographs and natural specimens are used to reveal how the plant and animal kingdoms have adapted for survival in the most extreme conditions on earth. Key to this are the taxidermy displays which allow visitors to compare the techniques specific to the polar bear, camel, ostrich, scimitar oryx and pipistrelle bat.
