Our impact reaches far beyond our sites in South Kensington and Tring.
Working with our partners, we inspire the UK to connect with the natural world. Through our national networks we improve resilience in museums and provide the skills to better understand our planet’s biodiversity and protect it for future generations.

Real World Science
Real World Science is a learning initiative run by UK partner museums.
This highly successful programme uses natural history collections to engage young people and teachers with science.
Answering the big science questions of our time requires collaboration.
By actively involving UK citizens in our research, we provide opportunities for people to contribute to science.

He visited eight venues and was seen by over two million visitors.
The Museum is a major partner in this group of UK museums and organisations that manage natural science collections. Its members share their experiences and work together to develop initiatives for better collections use and access.
