Take a journey through the animal kingdom with the Bell Pettigrew Museum’s incredible collection of skeletons, taxidermy, fossils, insects and more! This lesser-known natural history museum is well worth a visit for anyone interested in natural sciences or the study of animals throughout history, as well as a great place to spend the afternoon if you happen to be in the St Andrews area while it is open.
“Packed full of treasures and wonders, the Bell Pettigrew is a spectacular reminder of how important a museum can be in the study of the natural sciences.” – Sir David Attenborough
