The Trustees of the Natural History Museum are delighted to invite Members to a very special virtual preview of the 56th Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.

We're bringing the exhibition direct to you, hosted by Wildlife filmmaker and Sky Nature presenter Patrick Aryee, with behind-the-scenes commentary from Museum scientists, competition judges and photographers.

Join us as we take a deep dive into this year's winning photographs, sharing further insight and stories behind some of the exhibition's most powerful and thought-provoking images.

We are open!

Entry to the Museum remains free, but since we closed our doors we've been losing vital income. Donations will help us to continue welcoming visitors and connecting people to nature through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
