Quick question

What can I see at the Museum?

We're famous for our dinosaurs - but did you know we house over 80 million specimens spanning 4.5 billion years of Earth's history? Some of the incredible specimens on display include:

a 25.2-metre-long blue whale skeleton in Hintze Hall
a rare piece of Mars rock in The Vault
Mary Anning's ichthyosaur fossil in Fossil Marine Reptiles
the Archaeopteryx fossil - the first recognised specimen of its kind - in the Treasures gallery
precious gemstones and rare minerals in Earth's Treasury and the Minerals gallery
