Our Broken Planet: How We Got Here and Ways to Fix It

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.
