As you know, the Museum of Natural History is closed to the public throughout 2013 for restoration work on its leaky vaulted roof. Although our central galleries are thrown into shadow, there’s still plenty going on behind closed doors.
But if you’re missing your visits to the Museum, or have always wanted a peek behind the closed doors of our collections, now is your chance! On Saturday 24th August you can join one of our FREE behind-the-scenes tours as part of the national Hidden Treasures campaign
Expert staff from the museum’s collections will be your guides; see where fossils get fixed, explore the high-tech kit used to see inside minerals and even meet the oldest pinned insect in the world! I’ll be there on the day and would love to meet some “Darkened” followers. Don’t forget to book your places through our What’s On page.
