ARBUTHNOT Museum will be the first in Scotland to present an exhibition called Astro-Gnome.

The exciting temporary exhibition explores four topics through artistic interpertations, models and touch screen displays.

The four information pods cover Mars Today, The Manned Mission to the Moon, The Sun and the Earth’s Climate and finally Asteroids, Comets and the Death of the Dinosaurs.

The pods have plenty of information that is easy to understand so children and parents alike will find it both unmissible and informative.

Creator of Astro-Gnome, Martin Lunn MBE FRAS said: “Peterhead is going into outer space!”

“We are aiming to introduce all the wonders of science by telling stories because people tend to respond to stories instead of facts and figures.

“This is the exhibition’s first visit to Scotland although the pod theme ‘Mars Today’ was used on the BBC programme ‘Stargazing Live’.

“Hopefully those who are interested in science and space will find it interesting.”

The pods are surrounded by theatrical sets which include models of a velociraptor, martian rovers and a lazer lunar reflector.

Martin added: “We have an American flag for the Moon pod. We would have had a Scottish flag though we can’t recall Scotland doing a Moon mission!”

The Astro-Gnome exhibiton will run at the museum from January 26 to February 23.
