There have been many exciting recent discoveries, particularly in the field of ancient DNA, that help us better understand our ancestors and the reasons for the extinction of certain species.

The Museum is closed but our work continues

As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. We're doing everything we can to continue to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. If you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
