Behind the scenes at the museum. What happens when the animals try to leave the building?

They get treated with preservatives and cleaning agents, then wrapped in plastic, taped up and then frozen. There is a big freezer in the basement somewhere, and that is where they will go, whilst the museum gets a new makeover and a new exhibit space that is slightly more interactive, so I understand from the interesting talk with one of the museum guides, who kindly took me around the closed to the public Mammals section in the Manchester Museum.
