This exhibition explores the incredible feats of migration some birds must achieve in order to survive and breed.

A playful mix of art, science and social history reveals why some migrant birds such as the swallow and cuckoo have found a place in our hearts, art and culture, both here and in their winter homes abroad.

This family-friendly exhibition features birds from all over the world. Many spend at least some of their time here in the UK either in your garden or at the water’s edge.

Learn how to survive as a migrant bird and how to tell whether the starlings in your garden are really ‘yours’. Look up to enjoy a new work by contemporary artists Heinrich and Palmer. And of course, no exhibition on migration would be complete without a magnificent albatross.
