A 25-foot Alaskan totem pole outside the main entrance gives a clue as to what’s in here: a wealth of quirky anthropological and natural history treasures. You can while away hours perusing the place, but the Grade II-listed natural history gallery possibly contains the most memorable: a comically over-stuffed walrus (the work of an over-zealous 1880s taxidermist).
