Museum of the Dead

Updated Tuesday 28th September 2010

The votes have now been counted and it is with deepest sympathies that we launch the latest exhibit in the Museum of the Dead

Venture inside and behold the tombs of creatures who became extinct in the 2010s; read the tales of their demise and discover the latest poor soul to be included because of decreasing biodiversity...

Enter the Museum of the Dead

Enter the Museum of the Dead to see exhibits for the cat, panda, gorilla, koala, beaver, ostrich, Atlantic cod, wasp and mistletoe.
