Visit the Grant Museum of Zoology
Free to visit, the Grant Museum of Zoology is one of the oldest natural history collections in the UK and is the last remaining university natural history museum in London. Home to 68,000 zoological specimens, the collection is a unique window on the entire animal kingdom.
We are happy to announce that the museum is open again to the general public on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1pm-5pm, and Saturdays from 11am – 5pm, with safety measures and pre-booking in place. Your ticket includes our Displays of Power exhibition. Tickets go online two weeks in advance, with a few more released on the day.
Saturday 19 June: Festival of Intimacy
The Festival of Intimacy is a day-long festival of intimate performances, conversations and interactions that responds to the themes of touch and intimacy and asks what intimacy has meant as we live through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Events will take place between 11am-3pm in the Grant Museum and across the UCL campus. Booking is essential. See the full programme and book now.
How we’re keeping you safe
Please only visit the museum in groups of six or up to two households, and avoid mixing with other visitors.
In each of our museums we’ve installed sanitising stations, our staff will be wearing face coverings and we’ve temporarily removed any drawing materials and shared items. We’re keeping visitor numbers low and we’ve set-up one-way routes for you to follow.
In return, you need to wear a face covering inside our museums and when moving around the UCL campus (unless you are not able to for personal reasons). As in other public spaces, you need to keep 2m away from other visitors and if you develop any symptoms of Covid-19 after your visit, please contact NHS Test & Trace. All visitors over the age of 16 will need to provide contact details on arrival, or check-in using the NHS Test & Trace app.
