WHAT GOES ON BEHIND THE SCENES?
The Powell-Cotton museum is not just about the ‘stuffed’, or mounted, animal skins. In fact, 90% of the museum’s artefacts are hidden from view and make up the rest of Major Powell-Cotton’s meticulously documented collection.
"The Powell-Cotton Museum holds a remarkable scientific resource which in many ways is unique ... a beautiful place to work with a very friendly atmosphere" – Jaimie Morris, Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent.
From frogs in jars to skulls on shelves to big cat skins in boxes, everything that the Powell-Cotton Museum owns is put to great scientific use the whole year round. The world-renowned collection has helped students from Kent and researchers from across the world conduct studies to further the knowledge of mankind.
