Sunday 16 February

Discover the wonderful World of Whales as illustrator Becky Thorns joins us on World Whale Day on Sunday 16 February, 11am – 4pm, to celebrate the launch of her new book.

Make and Take-over

This special Make and Take will be taken over by local illustrator Becky Thorns. Take part in a group collage inspired by Becky’s new book, The World of Whales.

We’ll be using recycled plastic to create a whale collage of one of Becky’s whale illustrations which will be displayed in the Museum. You’ll also make a mini whale to take home.

You’re welcome to bring along your own materials including scrap paper and cardboard packaging.


There’s a stream of bubbles loose in the Museum, but can you find them all? Complete the trail to claim your prize.

The World of Whales

The World of Whales is a beautifully illustrated book which explores habits and characteristics of the giant sea creatures. Pick up your copy in the Museum shop and meet the artist to get your copy signed.

It’s free!

The World of Whales activities are FREE as part of the Museum’s annual admission fee. Pay once and get in free for a year.
