Turn on your X-ray vision and enter the hall of bones! Every human and animal skeleton tells a story. Whether they're internal, external, short, flat or hollow, bones speak volumes about the organisms they support. In this fun and fascinating exhibition the Museum takes its skeletons out of the closet for you to see right up close. Learn what bones are made of; how they mend after being broken or damaged; and discover how different types of skeletons such as fish and water mammals, land creatures and birds have evolved to cope with their specific environments - and why some animals have two, four or no feet! Discover how humans have endoskeletons (which means our skeletons are on the inside of our skin) while many other creatures like crabs and spiders have skeletons on the outside called exoskeletons. The Skeletons exhibition is located on Level G of the Museum.
