In this self-guided session, teachers can bring their students to explore the Animals: Art, Science and Sound exhibition independently.


Animals: Science, Art and Sound tells the global story of humans’ relationship with animals, exploring the way we have written about, visualised and recorded animals over time.

Drawing on the British Library’s renowned collection of original manuscripts, printed publications, artwork, and sound recordings, this exhibition will present a compelling account of how we have recorded the animal world through science, art and sound.


On arrival, we provide a printed resource to help teachers and students engage with key items on display and uncover some of the major themes explored in the exhibition to support classroom learning.
