Moveable Beast

Exhibition

The exhibits in the Natural History Collection in Bergen, Norway are undergoing a major restoration, and will be closed for at least five years. Due to this, all the animals are being moved to a new temporary storage facility on the other side of town. Not a simple task when the animals are big and fragile. Some of the animals are out of their display cases for the first time in almost 150 years.
