Top: How the refurbished Arup building will appear after refurbishment showing the new Whale Hall (Nicholas Hare Achitects) Left: The new Whale Hall (Nicholas Hare Achitects) Right: The Museum’s finback whale skeleton, one of the largest recorded specimen, was washed up on the beach at Pevensey in East Sussex in 1865 where over 40,000 people flocked to see it. The skeleton was bought by the Museum in 1866 where it was on display in the original Museum building. It was re-displayed on the podium of the new Arup building in 1996 where it became a Cambridge landmark. Now dismantled and in store it will feature in the Museum’s new Whale Hall. After the Blue Whale, the Finback is the second largest species on the planet.
