National impact

Our impact reaches far beyond the Museum’s sites in South Kensington and Tring.

Working with our partners, we inspire the UK to connect with the natural world. Through our national networks we improve resilience in museums and provide the skills to better understand our planet’s biodiversity and protect it for future generations.

Dippy on Tour

Our iconic Diplodocus is on a UK tour, visiting eight partner venues.

Associated activities will encourage children to go on their own natural history adventures and become future scientists.

Citizen science

Answering the big science questions of our time requires collaboration.

By actively involving UK citizens in our research, we provide opportunities for people to contribute to science.
