Natural History Museum


About the Natural History Museum

One of the great museums of the Victorian era.

The famous frontage contains a huge number of galleries filled with animal collections, skeletons and fossils.

A number of galleries also cover geology and the planet earth itself.

Most of the museum is free to visit, but there are usually a few large paid-for exhibitions each year.

During the holiday season expect queues to get in.
