Travelling Exhibit Circulated by the Royal Ontario Museum
The City of Belleville’s Glanmore National Historic Site is hosting a travelling exhibition visiting from the Royal Ontario Museum. Northern Owls has arrived at Glanmore National Historic Site!
Most owls are active at night and secretive during the day; some even perch in a way that makes them look like the branch of a tree to hide from view! Northern Owls focuses on fascinating and less well-known aspects of owl behaviour, biology, and lifestyle. This exhibition, accompanied by English and French text, features 11 beautifully mounted owl specimens in small case settings suggestive of their natural habitats. The exhibition is organized into three sections: “Feathers”, “Hunters by Nature” and “The Ultimate Northern Owl.” Owl calls create an interesting ambiance, which complements the viewing of the exhibition.
Northern Owls is on display at Glanmore National Historic Site, 257 Bridge Street East, Belleville from March 8 to April 28, 2019. Admission: Adults $8.00; Students and Seniors $6.50; Children 5-12 $4.50; Children under 5 – Free; Family Rate (2 adults, 3 children) $25.00.
Please note that Glanmore National Historic Site will be CLOSED April 19-22, 2019. Regular museum hours will resume on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
