The Grant Museum of Zoology is the only remaining university zoological museum in London. It houses around 68,000 specimens, covering the whole Animal Kingdom.
Founded in 1828 as a teaching collection, the Museum is packed full of skeletons, mounted animals and specimens preserved in fluid. Many of the species are now endangered or extinct including the Tasmanian Tiger, the Quagga, and the Dodo.
They are open to the public Monday - Saturday 1-5pm. They are also open for group and research visits on weekday mornings 10am - 1pm, when advanced booking is required.
