BIRDS, insects and bugs have been the centre of attention at a popular exhibition that is only running for another week.

Portsmouth City Museum’s Birds, Beasts and Bugs showcases a fantastic natural history collection with interactive games to keep all members of the family entertained until January 6.

Simon Vaughan, 46, a civil engineer from North End, spent the afternoon at the exhibit with daughters Ellen, eight, Katie, seven, and Amelia, three.

He said: ‘The girls have had a great time, and they particularly enjoyed the games which quizzed them on their knowledge of the animals.

‘Even though I went along for the children, I had a lot of fun myself.’
