The Natural History Museum is one of the most visited museums in the UK and one of the largest museums of natural history in the world. From botany to zoology, the museum is home to some 70 million items including 55 million animals and more than 500,000 rocks and minerals.
This project has been awarded funding from the National Lottery, which includes a grant from Heritage Lottery Fund, to build the Darwin Centre and a grant from Arts Council England for an exhibit.
Famously known for ‘Dippy’ the 105 foot long dinosaur replica, the Natural History Museum houses permanent, temporary and interactive exhibits, many of which have received National Lottery funding. There are wonderful learning opportunities for adults and children alike with school activities, family activities and university weeks on offer. The museum is also home to the largest collection of natural history library materials in the world.
With origins as far back as 1753, the Natural History Museum continues to help people explore their heritage in fun and interactive ways.
