A new interactive exhibition for children in Cumbria will be opening this Spring.

Driggsby, A Whale's Tale is an exhibition inspired by the imagination of over 150 children from schools on Cumbria’s west coast, telling the story of Driggsby the fin whale.

The exhibition will be shown at Tullie House in Carlisle in line with the museum's opening in stage 3 of the government's roadmap, expected this May.

Driggsby was a 12-metre-long, juvenile fin whale who washed up on Drigg beach and is now on display as part of the Tullie House collection.

The children worked with Prism Arts and Tullie House to explore life in our oceans, discover how Driggsby might have journeyed to Cumbria and learn why whales have been the inspiration for myths and legends.
