At lunchtime, between 12 noon and 1 o'clock, visitors can bring their own snack or buy cheap in the Museum Grill before enjoying the talks - "Bison as Popular Icon", "Bison in Wildlife Art", "The Destruction of the American Bison", "The Bison and its Meaningful Indigenous Cultures", "The Last Big Animals of the Great Plains" and "The Buffalo War".
