the Sheep is moving to the Museum of Scottish Country Life for the
summer months. Dolly, who has become famous across the world as
a symbol of genetic cloning, will spend the summer at the Museum,
before returning to the Royal Museum in Edinburgh for permanent
display in the autumn.
After Dolly died in February this year, she was donated to the National
Museums of Scotland by the Roslin Institute so that she could be
preserved for future generations. For the past three months she
has been on display in the Royal Museum, where she has been seen
by over 160,000 visitors.
Museum of Scottish Country Life, which shows how country people
lived and worked, celebrates its second anniversary this July. Since
it opened it has staged an exciting range of events from a heavy
horse shows to vintage car rallies. The Museum, which is around
40 minutes drive from Glasgow, includes a modern exhibition building,
traditional farmhouse and historic working farm. It is the first
national museum in the west of Scotland.
