Monkey Business

Monkey Business arrives this December at the National Museum of Scotland. This family-friendly exhibition explores the world of primates, from the tiny mouse lemur to the mighty gorilla.

Monkey Business 600

This fascinating exhibition features more than 50 new taxidermy specimens and articulated skeletons of monkeys, apes, lemurs, lorises and bushbabies, alongside models, interactives, photography and film. 

Discover how different primates move and communicate, how they’ve developed tools to get hold of food and how their complex social systems work. Find out how primates have been impacted by their human cousins, including the ways in which many species are threatened with extinction through habitat loss and hunting.
