Grant Museum of Zoology
The Grant Museum of Zoology is a fascinating museum in central London I’d somehow never heard of. It’s full of curiosities and pieces of dead things in glass jars. A great place to spend a rainy winter afternoon.
Visitors are invited to adopt a specimen - for a year or for life - a unique gift idea for sure. They welcome photography - but with copious amounts of glass and poor lighting it’s a real challenge.
The most popular exhibit by far was a small room (about 1m square) filled along the walls with annotated glass slides. Instagram photos from the museum are filled with shots from this one area.
