Object Lessons: Models and illustrations from the 19th century

Small but spectacular discoveries from the Victorian classroom. From glass jellyfish to flower models, images of the eye to beetle diagrams, the teaching tools of 19th-century life science are a wonder to behold.

At Manchester Museum

David Gelsthorpe, exhibition curator of Object Lessons at Manchester Museum, will talk about George Loudon’s extraordinary collection of models and illustrations from the 19th Century – a treasure trove of wonderful, often bizarre objects.
