Monkey Business let visitors get up close to the world of primates, from the tiny mouse lemur to the mighty gorilla. Featuring more than 60 taxidermy specimens created especially for the exhibition, as well as photography, film and hands-on interactives for all ages, this immersive, family-friendly exhibition took visitors into the heart of the jungle.
The exhibition is now touring internationally – you can find out more about the tour here.
All the taxidermy specimens in the exhibition are animals that have died naturally in captivity. No animals were harmed for this exhibition.
