Dinosaurs, precious gems and creepy-crawlies – as a visitor to the Natural History Museum you will be amazed by the diversity of the natural world. The Museum is not only home to the nation’s finest collection of natural history specimens; it is also one of the UK’s top attractions, with more than five million visitors last year. And we don’t just store science – visitors to the Darwin Centre can see our scientists at work and find out why our specimens are relevant to science today
