We are transforming Earth Today and Tomorrow into a new gallery about Human Evolution, opening in October, and a new shop, opening in August. During this time, some specimens in the Earth Hall port windows will be removed for safety. Sorry for any inconvenience.
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 June 2015, but some specimens will undergo further conservation work until later in the summer.
The Investigate centre is closed for maintenance on the last Thursday of each month from 14.30, except during school holidays. For more information call the bookings office on +44 (0)20 7942 5555.
As part of the Museum's Hintze Hall redevelopment programme, the Mammals and blue whale gallery will be closed from 3 September 2015 to 25 September 2015. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
