The Robot Zoo

Giant robot animals invade the Horniman Museum and Gardens this year as The Robot Zoo opens!

11 February 2017 – 29 October 2017 | Visit website | Book tickets

South London's Horniman Museum and Gardens is invaded by larger-than-life robot animals this February! Made from familiar machine parts and gadgets, the animals include a squid with 18-foot tentacles and a huge housefly with a vacuum cleaner for a mouth.

Using pistons for muscles, pipes instead of intestines, and computerised ‘brains’, the robot animals show how their real life counterparts see, hear, hunt, hide and move. Interactive games and challenges reveal some of nature’s most amazing adaptations. Find out how a chameleon changes colour, what makes grasshoppers leap so high, and exactly why a platypus looks so strange.

The Robot Zoo runs at the Horniman Museum and Gardens in South London 11 February - 29 October 2017. Tickets now on sale.

Please see the website for full details.
