The Director's view
Reaching out Meeting the challenges

The Darwin Centre is one of many ways in which we are seeking to engage new audiences and communicate to them our passion for the natural world.

Reaching out to new audiences: the Darwin Centre opened to an enthusiastic public reception. Imaginative temporary exhibitions such as Dino-Birds continued to attract wide public interest and attention. Our galleries at South Kensington and Tring were visited by nearly 2.9 million people of all ages and backgrounds, a substantial uplift on the previous year. We reached out to audiences across the UK and worldwide with our touring exhibitions, which were visited by a record number of nearly 1.8 million people. Our popular website achieved a 31% increase in traffic with 4.7 million virtual visitors.
