The exhibition features 60 spectacular new taxidermy specimens created by National Museums Scotland specialists, and skeletons of monkeys, apes, lemurs and bushbabies alongside a host of interactives, film, models and photography. Visitors can discover how different primates move and communicate, how they’ve developed tools to get hold of food and their complex social systems. It also examines the relationship between humans and primates, including the ways in which many species are threatened with extinction through the impact of habitat loss and hunting.
Monkeys! A Primate Story will be touring internationally from 2017
