Join palaeontologist Richard Twitchett to discover how exploring climates in the past can be an important guide to our present and possible future world.

Suitable for ages 12+

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. 

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