This free art exhibition celebrates the unique nature on our shores. With over 70,000 documented species, the British Isles have a diverse and distinctive natural history.
This remarkable diversity has captured the imagination of many artists, scientists and naturalists, inspiring them to observe and document the nation's geology, flora and fauna.
Admire artworks of some of Britain's most iconic species. This showcase of items from the Museum Library's collection explores the many different ways the wonderful variety of wildlife in Britain has been depicted over the past 300 years.
We will display more than 200 original illustrations over the course of the exhibition, with a new selection every four months.
