POSTPONED – Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the Natural History Museum
31 March @ 17:00 - 18:00
Due to the rapidly evolving situation surrounding the coronavirus, the BGA is postponing the backstage tour of the Natural History Museum to a later date. We will be refunding members in full for their tickets.
Join us for a backstage tour of the Natural History Museum!
This will be an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour with curators and scientists from the Natural History Museum. We will be treated to seeing treasures, such as the stunning Blaschka glass models. More than 10,000 were created by the German father-and-son team Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka in the nineteenth century. Then we will be shown the spirit collection with specimens collected by Charles Darwin himself, the rare books library and the museum’s mineral collection, which is one of the most important and comprehensive collections of its type in the world.
The tour will be followed by drinks at Stein’s, for those who would like to stay on for a Q&A with the curators.
This event is for BGA members only.
Please note that we will be meeting at the entrance on Exhibition Road.
