  • This museum is absolutely fascinating. Only small but you'll want to spend a while here, there's a lot to take in. It's easy to find, just a short walk from Euston Square tube station, and it's not fa...  more »

  • This is just an incredible place both for adults and kids! Just one room - but with amazing concentration of interesting stuff in it! Bones, skulls of animals (from mice to elephants), possibility to discover how animals are "built" and even whole animals. In addition there is a big creativity table for kids in the center of the room where the kids can draw and do other sorts of do-it-yourself activities.
  • Very interesting little museum about the biology of animals and creatures of all sorts. Small but fascinating little place packed full of specimens. Free entry - great for education. Highly recommended but understandably it's not for everyone.
  • Very weird and unusual museum. A bit creepy (wouldn't want to be left alone). Probably not great for big animal lovers... Very interesting. I believe you could also adopt one of the pieces however not too sure. Is small (compared to other museum's) but nice for something different.
  • This natural history museum is part of the University College London and although small, it is jam-packed with exhibits (specimens, all kind of skeletons, animals preserved in liquids that I have never even heard of). It is truly one of those London best-kept-gems; the room is also beautiful and as soon as you enter the building, you will be transported to the Victoria era; highly recommended.
  • The Grant Museum of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy 😱 I have to admit that the Museum it self is a lot smaller that I expected, but anyways the collection is soo big that you can easily spend a few hours here. The collection contains around 68,000 zoological specimens, many of which are very rare and several of which have been rediscovered only recently in storage. 📍In 2011, the museum moved from its previous location in the Darwin Building on the UCL campus to new quarters in the Thomas Lewis Room in the Rockefeller Building.
