Wildlife Photographer of the Year
Opening 29 May - FREE ENTRY
Now in its 50th year, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition provides a global showcase of the very best nature photography. The competition is co-owned by two UK institutions that pride themselves on revealing and championing the diversity of life on Earth - the Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide.
Scotland Street School Museum is delighted to be hosting an exhibition of the winning photographs for 2014 as part of a worldwide tour.
Opening on 29 May until 29 November, the exhibition will showcase the talent and vision of each photographer, as well as exhibiting some of our own Natural History collection.
There will be a host of wildlife-themed events and activities to complement the exhibition, including talks for adults, weekend workshops for families and special programmes for the summer and October school holidays. You can find out more about these in our bi-monthly What's On magazine, available from every museum, or on our events database HERE

We regularly run two sessions with live

Horrible Heidie, where our school's own horrible headmaster takes you on a tour of the school, and Time Travellers - School Days which takes you through school life during Victorian times, WWII and the 1960s. You can check for any upcoming Horrible Heidie or Time Travellers sessions in our What's On magazine. We also promote these sessions on our Facebook page - look for Scotland Street School Museum and give us a like!
