Explorathon 2016 is the third edition of the largest celebration for European Researchers’ Night across Scotland. It takes place on the 30th September.


We are happy to announce that we will be part of this year’s Explorathon program. Come along to the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery on Friday 30th September to find out more about our research. We'll be taking part the event Hunterian Unlocked and will have a stand showcasing the barkcloth research. Bring your own barkcloth along, or come to see the barkcloth plants and pieces from the Hunterian collection in detail and though the microscope.
