Join Malgosia Nowak-Kemp of the Museum's Life Collections for a special glimpse of the Museum's spirit store. She will reveal the history of this important collection, made up of 20,000 specimens of vertebrate animals preserved in spirit, before taking you down into the store itself. You will see unique specimens including extinct species and natural curiosities.

Over 18s only, due to nature of specimens included in tour. Unfortunately narrow and steep spaces mean that there is no disabled access for this tour. Please book online.
