A History of the Natural History Museum

Bob Press, John Thackray

This short history, co-authored by two of the Natural History Museum’s former specialists, explores the museum and its origins in the founding collections of the British Museum, and follows its evolution and burgeoning acquisitions from Montagu House in Bloomsbury to its current home in South Kensington. Featuring archival artworks, illustrations and diagrams, the book also highlights key exhibitions and permanent exhibits, as well as the museum’s prominent role in education and research.
