Nature Live Online

Meet our scientists and discover the fascinating work carried out behind the scenes at the Museum.

Hang out with the Nature Live Online team every Tuesday at 12.00 BST and Friday at 10.30 BST for interactive talks featuring topical discussions with our scientists and cutting-edge research.

From meteorites to mammoths, evolution to the climate crisis, Nature Live Online is a great way to explore the natural world.

All events are free to watch online on the Museum's website, YouTube channel or Facebook page. You do not need to enter any personal information to watch these broadcasts, although you will need to log in to Facebook or YouTube to leave a comment.

Wasps!

Live stream 10.30 BST,  Friday 18 September

There is more to wasps than being the annoying insect that ruins picnics!

Meet Museum entomologist Gavin Broad and find out more about these insects' diverse lifestyles.

You can ask questions while the talk is happening. Head to the video on YouTube and type your question into the chat box during the broadcast.

The Museum is 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.
