The Natural History Museum is a world-leading visitor attraction and science research centre. It is the most visited natural history museum in Europe, welcoming more than five million visitors each year.


One of the most iconic and impressive buildings in London, the Museum recently reimagined its spectacular Hintze Hall. Discover star specimens such as Hope – a 25-metre blue whale plunging down from the ceiling, a rock as old as the solar system and one of the UK’s most complete dinosaurs.

Other treasures from the Museum’s unique collection of more than 80 million specimens can be seen across its many permanent galleries, which includes one of the world’s most impressive dinosaur exhibitions.

The Museum has a dynamic programme of temporary exhibitions which includes its world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. There is also an exciting after-hours events programme featuring early morning yoga, silent discos and dinosaur sleepovers.

With regular family exhibitions, plenty interactive activities and action-packed school holiday programmes, there's something for everyone at the Natural History Museum.
