Go behind the scenes with our knowledgeable science educators for a look at the Museum's fascinating zoology collection preserved in spirit. As we explore some of the Darwin Centre's 27 kilometres of shelves, you'll encounter numerous treasures hidden among the 22 million animal specimens housed here. You'll meet Archie, our 8.62-metre-long giant squid, view specimens collected by Charles Darwin himself and learn more about our cutting-edge research.
This event will have some advance tickets released ahead of the Festival weekend via the Natural History Museum website.
