The Grant Museum of Zoology is the only remaining university zoology museum in London. It houses around 68,000 specimens, covering the whole animal kingdom. Entry to the museum is free and we’re open Monday - Saturday from 13:00-17:00. Founded in 1828 as a teaching collection, the museum is packed full of skeletons, mounted animals and specimens preserved in fluid. Many of the species are now endangered or extinct including the Tasmanian tiger or thylacine, the quagga, and the dodo. We run family activities during the half-terms and fortnightly Saturdays. All of our family workshops are fun, hands-on and include the use of the museum’s collections, giving children and young people the chance to handle and see our specimens in a different light. From the light-hearted to the thought-provoking, our adult programme aims to amuse, stimulate and challenge in equal measure. We’re proud to be part of UCL Culture and showcase exciting research at UCL with researchers and PhD students in our programme of talks, temporary art exhibitions and late night openings.
