Reconnect with nature
The fifty-sixth Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will immerse you in the breathtaking diversity of the natural world.
Explore some of the world's richest habitats, see fascinating animal behaviour and get to know some extraordinary species.
Go deeper and discover the surprising - and often challenging - stories behind the images during a time of environmental crisis.
Each image has been selected by a panel of international experts and showcases some of the best wildlife photography in the world.
The exhibition encourages visitors to foster a personal connection with the world around them.
Be one of the first in line to see the exhibition by joining as a Member. Look forward to priority booking, Member-only viewing hours, bespoke content and events bringing you closer to this magical exhibition.
Membership starts from just £62.
Join us for late-night openings of the Museum where you can enjoy both Fantastic Beasts™: The Wonder of Nature and Wildlife Photographer of the Year while the Museum is usually closed.
Tickets available for evenings on 20 May, 27 May and 3 June.
