Step inside this grand Edwardian building and you'll find rare and extinct dodo specimens, one of only seven quagga skeletons in the world, and the famous glass jar of moles.

Established in 1827 as part of UCL, today the museum is still a space for exploring the animal kingdom and making ground-breaking new discoveries.

Drop-in and enjoy a free exhibition inspired by the specimens on display, new work by contemporary artists and university researchers, or get your hands on a specimen at one of the museum's interactive events.
