Birds gallery refurbishment

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.

Hintze Hall, new name for the Central Hall

The Museum’s famous Central Hall has been renamed Hintze Hall, in recognition of a generous donation from Sir Michael and Lady Hintze. Read the news.
