Over half a million specimens and natural history literature and data extending back over three centuries are housed in this fascinating museum, including hundreds of British birds displayed in recreated natural settings. Plus butterflies, skeletons, a whale and dinosaur bones. The Discovery Laboratory offers interactive displays exploring the Booth's collections.   

There is also a gift shop at the museum.

Admission is free.
