We hope you share our passion for the Museum. We're continuing to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities.
But the Museum is a charity and we need your help. With our doors closed we're losing vital income, and if you could help us with a donation, no matter the size, we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
