Museum researchers and curators can also share their natural history knowledge in the form of interviews, or consulting services.

Hintze Hall

The architecture of the Waterhouse building makes Hintze Hall one of the most distinctive venues in London to film in.

The Darwin Centre

With its clean lines, airy, light-filled rooms and gleaming surfaces, the Darwin Centre is an exciting and versatile modern space.

Earth Galleries

With a giant globe dominating the central space, Earth Hall and surrounding galleries offer an atmospheric location for any shoot.

Dinosaurs and Mammals

The gallery's elevated walkway provides an interesting film perspective as towering skeletons throw haunting shadows onto the gallery walls.

The Natural History Museum at Tring houses an extensive collection of mounted specimens, making it a unique location for filming.
