Annual Review 2011/12

The last year marked another record for the Natural History Museum in terms of visitor numbers - nearly 5 million people came through our doors. Despite ongoing economic difficulties, we continue to attract visitors from across the UK and all over the world who wish to engage with the science of nature.

We are delighted that the Museum goes from strength to strength, but mindful that we must continue to articulate, demonstrate and enhance our value to all our stakeholders to ensure the long-term future of this great institution.
