Our Natural Sciences collections cover both life sciences and earth sciences.
With renewed government restrictions we are currently unable to accept return loans or make any new outgoing research loans.
Our collections are comprehensive in their coverage of the natural world, although Botany is only represented by fossil plants.
Our collections are global in terms of their content and most of the several million specimens held originate from efforts to better understand the Natural World.
Our collections and specimens are open to researchers for examination, and we'd be happy to help you conduct research. Please contact our staff to enquire.
