The 2014/2015 review
When people seek reliable information about the natural world, they find it at the Museum.
Our vast collections and scientific expertise enable us to challenge what we know, and shape our understanding of the world around us.
In 2013 the Museum became the UK's third most popular visitor attraction, welcoming 5.4 million visitors - our highest annual attendance ever. This highlights the public's interest in the natural world, and the Museum’s crucial role in advancing the science of nature.
