Feline fun at Scots museum
POSTED 09 Mar 2004 . BY
Scotland’s Royal Museum in Edinburgh is staging a natural history exhibition of the feline kind until 30 May.

Cats... The Ultimate Predators, brings together all 37 known wild cat species – from the largest lion down to the smallest rusty spotted cat from India and Sri Lanka.

MICE’s Csáky Associates and Silver Knight designed and built the exhibition for the National Museums Scotland (NMS).

Andrew Kitchener, curator of birds and mammals at NMS, said: "This is the first time that all cats of the world have been brought together in one place. The result is a fun, visual and exciting exhibition, which will reveal the secrets behind one of the world's most successful families of predators".

The new exhibition is particularly aimed at children, using interactive elements to allow them to explore how it feels to be a cat.

Guests can test how a cat’s claws work, feel a tiger’s tongue, learn the difference between cat calls and even identify different cat smells.

The exhibition sheds light on the history of cats, from their fossilised origins to their evolution as specialised mammalian predators. It examines their survival and adaptation to extreme habitats and the ways in which they hunt and kill. Details: www.nms.ac.uk and www.micegroup.com
