Museum Specimens

The different specimens held here at the McGregor Museum come from a variety of sources such as the giant elephant skull of Mollie, the jaw of the Spade toothed whale and the human skeleton. Each specimen is sure to have a story as to it’s origin but unfortunately not all can be remembered.

The collection here includes a range of native and exotic species from the minute insect and amazing butterfly collection (McGregor room 2) through the incredible Moa and Primates. Below are a couple of clips to introduce to the specimens here at the museum, check out the individual postings for more detail and remember to check back from time to time for new material as more of the collection is digitised!
