Special Visitors at our Cabinet of Curiosities

On February 6 the exhibitions team at the Main Library Exhibition Gallery welcomed the P3 and 4’s from Campie Primary School in Musselburgh. From a narwhal tusk to meteorites, the exhibition offers a unique opportunity to see some of the more unusual items from the University’s collections. As well as a community outreach project, we trialled an idea to provide an alternative audio guide for the exhibition. We recorded the children talking about particular exhibits and describing what they liked and didn’t like about the exhibition. We were very impressed not only with the fantastic guide the children created for us, but also how beautifully behaved they were throughout their visit.

The Campie Primary School Guide to Collect.ed is now playing in the Main Library Exhibition Guide until the exhibition closes March 1. There’s only 2 more Saturdays left to step inside our exhibition from a bygone era, admission is free.
