The Natural History Museum Museums
Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road
The Natural History Museum traces its roots to the middle of the eighteenth century with the establishment of the British Museum in Bloomsbury. The British Museum housed the collection of Sir Hans Sloane (1660-1753), a prominent London physician and collector. Sloane's collection was extremely varied, including everything from dried snake skins from the West Indies, 338 volumes of dried plants, animal and human skeletons, to artefacts from the ancient world.
Today, it houses a massive collection of natural history items of interest, including galleries about dinosaurs, biodiversity, Earth and the solar system, insects, mammals and birds, and plants.
