Horniman Museum Museums
London Road, Forest Hill
The Horniman has a unique range of exhibitions, events and activities which illustrate the cultural and natural world. Our collections of anthropology, natural history and musical instruments provide the inspiration for our programme of permanent and temporary exhibitions and events and activities.
The Horniman has three main collections, World Cultures (Ethnography) comprising 80,000 objects, Natural History with 250,000 specimens, and Musical Instruments with over 7,000 instruments plus 1,000 archive documents. There is also a parallel education handling collection which has over 3,700 objects drawn from all three main disciplines and a library collection with texts and related items covering the main collection areas.
The museum's wide range of collections and gardens uniquely illustrate the breadth of the World's natural and cultural diversity, and can be a powerful resource and stimulus for all styles of exploration and learning by all visitors.
The Museum is a five minute walk up from Forest Hill station and has free parking in the surrounding streets. For coaches, there is a drop off point outside the Museum near to the Clocktower. See facilities for disabled visitors for more information about accessible parking.
