Continuing Display

Weston Park Museum

Meet one of the real stars of Weston Park Museum.


At home in the What on Earth! gallery, Spike has been delighting visitors to the museum for many years. He’s a lifelike replica of a woolly rhinoceros, a large mammal that lived in Britain during the last Ice Age, up to around 10,000 years ago. Top tip – Spike loves to be in a #museumselfie.
