Have you ever wondered how insects in museum collections can survive for hundreds of years? How they keep their colour? How these fragile creatures hold their pose? Or how caterpillars are preserved like tissue paper balloons? Learn how RAMM’s collection of over 250,000 insects was formed and how to preserve and care for your own collection from RAMM’s Natural History curator.

Tutor: Holly Morgenroth
