Exciting changes are taking place at the Museum, with Hintze Hall reopening in summer 2017 after a major redevelopment. During this time the Museum will still offer a range of beautiful spaces for events, such as Earth Hall and the Darwin Centre, with a selection of exclusive packages for more intimate events throughout the galleries.
