Specimens from 18 museums have been brought together through the project Linking Natural Science Collections in Wales.

Helping us understand the world and our place within it, the exhibiton explores the collections and their role in modern research, and invites audiences to consider humanity's impact on the natural world.

Just a fraction of at least 72,200 specimens are on display. Exhibits range from British bird eggs to an Australian platypus, and a rare auroch's bone to a 19th-century painting on a feather.
