Take a sip of science

Begining in April, these monthly evening events will cover some of the Museum's most fascinating work, all in short, easy to digest talks.

First Tuesday of every month.



Join us for an evening of discovery as our Museum scientists discuss the wonders of the natural world.

On the first Tuesday of every month our in-house experts will cover some of the most weird and wonderful aspects of their scientific research.

The bar will be open all evening so you can sip on a soft drink as you learn about sharks or muse over mammoths with a nice glass of wine.
