Despite their virtual nature, it seems our butterflies from The Secret World of Butterflies have been laying eggs around the Museum. We have to find them all before they start to hatch and eat our objects!
Follow the clues and let us know how many there are so we can humanely transport them to the nearest swan plant. To start the hunt pick up a trail map from the information desks or start up a conversation with Clara the Curator on Facebook messenger.
Anyone who completes the hunt to go into the draw to win a fabulous toy pack from the Museum Shop!
We’ll have pencils available for a gold coin donation, or BYO pen/pencil.
To begin talking to Clara, you can search for 'Curator Clara' on Facebook Messenger, or click here.
