To ease congestion, we are moving specimens and cases and creating new displays in the Birds gallery. The gallery is open and refurbishments should be completed by spring 2015.
The transformed gallery will continue to showcase favourites such as the dodo and Archaeopteryx models and the historic hummingbird cabinet.
We apologise for any disruption to your Picnic Area visit during the summer holidays. We are refurbishing the area and there may be some noisy building work at times.
