Monkeys! A primate story

Tampere Museums Vapriikki, Tampere

  • 25.2.2022–23.10.2022

The jungle arrives at Vapriikki as primates swing from the branches, hang by their tails and screech from the canopy in Monkeys from 25th February.


Interactives throughout the exhibition bring the displays to life for children and adults alike, allowing them to discover more about our closest cousins.

More than 60 spectacular new taxidermy specimens of monkeys, apes, lemurs, lorises and bush-babies are revealed in the most comprehensive exhibition on primates ever. The taxidermy was specially commissioned for the exhibition, which is the first to show primates behaving as if they were in the wild. Dynamic poses capture the wide variety of behaviours of some of the worlds most endangered primates.

Displays explore communication, social groups and behaviours. Visitors can learn more about the visual signals, language and scent-marking used by primates.
