Long-finned Pilot Whale

On 26 October, the skeleton of our 152-year-old long-finned pilot whale will go on display at Leeds City Museum.

We will reveal the name of the marine mammal, as chosen by the public, along with the specially commissioned poem. Come along to take part in free whale-themed activities all weekend and throughout October half term.
