Fantastic Beasts™: The Wonder of Nature postponed until further notice

Following the latest Government advice, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close the Museum until further notice. As a result, the Fantastic Beasts™: The Wonder of Nature exhibition, which was due to open in May, will be postponed.

We prioritise the safety of our visitors, staff, supporters and volunteers. All ticket holders will be refunded automatically and will have priority booking when the new exhibition dates are announced.

Together with our partners Warner Bros. and the BBC, we remain very excited about this exhibition. We can't wait to show you the remarkable links between the natural, mythical and wizarding worlds.

Thank you for your ongoing support, patience and understanding at this challenging time.

We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can.

Discover where the real and wizarding worlds intertwine, and how the wonders of the natural world have inspired myths, legends and magical creatures for generations.  

Embark on a journey where not all is as it seems, where magical beasts and fantastic animals share abilities and behaviours that allow them to dazzle, attract and escape. 

Celebrate real-world explorers who, like the character Newt Scamander™, help us to understand our planet's extraordinary creatures so we can protect them for the future.
