We hope you share our passion for the Museum. We're continuing to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities.
But the Museum is a registered charity and we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. So if you could help us with a donation – no matter the size – we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
