Find out how we store, care for and use our 20 million entomology and botany specimens and discover some of the stories behind the scenes.
Who were the first collectors and how did their methods differ from modern day scientists? How do scientists organise, classify and name specimens? Why is our collection so valuable for research and how do we share it with the world? What do molecular techniques tell us about our specimens and how is this helping in the fight against malaria?
Discover the answers to these questions and more through a series of interactive exhibits, which allow you to collect information to look at later online.
