Lapworth Museum addition

The Lapworth Museum of Geology at the University of Birmingham is delighted to announce that it has had a new arrival… a Darwinopterus! This short film ( shows its first few moments in the museum and it settling into its new surroundings.

I hope you like this short video. This is a particularly important year for the Lapworth Museum, which has been nominated for Art Fund’s “Museum of the Year”. We are really proud of this nomination and is a testament to the hard work of the enthusiastic volunteers and tiny number of full time staff.

If you enjoy this video we would really appreciate it if you could share it on social media in an effort to encourage people to keep supporting our wonderful museums using #Lapworthrocks #museumoftheyear @ArtFund @LapworthMuseum.
