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 to the general public on Tuesday-Friday 1pm-5pm, and Saturdays from 11am – 5pm, with safety measures and pre-booking in place. Tickets go online two weeks in advance, with a few more released on the day.
Ticketing update: From Satuday 25 September 2021 we will no longer require you to book a ticket; at this time we will convert to free entry on the door. You may have to wait a few minutes for entry if the museum is particuarly busy.
How we’re keeping you safe
The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors is paramount and so we have decided to keep in place a number of our Covid-19 safety measures beyond 19 July.
In each of our museums we’ve installed sanitising stations, and our staff and volunteers will continue to wear face coverings. We’re keeping visitor numbers low and we’ve set-up one-way routes for you to follow.
In return, we expect you to wear a face covering inside our museums and when moving around the UCL campus (unless you are not able to for personal reasons). We expect our visitors to show common courtesy and respect to each other around distancing and if you develop any symptoms of Covid-19 after your visit, please contact NHS Test & Trace. All visitors over the age of 16 are encouraged to provide contact details on arrival, or check-in using the NHS Test & Trace app.
Check before you visit
Being able to safely open is reliant on the health of our staff and volunteers. If members of our team become unwell or are asked to self-isolate, we may have to close the museums. If you have prebooked your ticket, we will inform you as soon as we know. We will try and give as much notice as possible, but please check our website and social media in advance of your visit.
These measures have been drawn up in accordance with industry best practice and guidance issued by the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.
These measures will stay in place beyond 19 July until 31 August at the earliest.
