Explore science and nature in the Darwin Centre's Cocoon, meet experts at the daily Attenborough Studio events, and see specimens close up in the Zoology spirit building.
Drop in to the Centre for UK Biodiversity in the Cocoon atrium or relax outside in the adjoining courtyard.
A memorial to those who lost their lives in the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami is located in the courtyard.
Inside the Cocoon see hundreds of Museum specimens. Marvel at beetles and butterflies, metre-high plants, huge tarantulas and historic herbaria.
