I love visiting natural history museums around the world. I've noticed that many of these institutions house live displays of smaller animals whether for temporary exhibitions or as part of a permanent collection. Personally, I always feel that seeing live specimens / species alongside the dead taxidermy specimens , wet specimens and skeletons that form the bulk of these collections really enhances the overall educational experience. What natural history museums that you have visited keep live displays and what species are kept ? Is it a good thing in your opinion that museums keep live specimens or should this be limited to zoos ?
