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.

  • Ticket information

    It's essential that all visitors (including Members and Corporate Supporters) book a ticket in advance. Tickets include Museum entry.

    Capacity for this exhibition has been set so that all visitors have a safe and enjoyable time. Please read our safety information before your visit. 

    In line with government advice, if you're visiting with others they must be from your household or support bubble.

    As a result of capacity restrictions the Museum has made the decision to suspend the reciprocal admissions schemes under ICOM, Museums Association and the National Museum Directors' Conference. Entrance to the Museum remains free and we hope to welcome MA/ICOM members to our exhibitions soon.
