The Grant Museum of Zoology is the only remaining university zoological museum in London. It houses around 68,000 specimens, covering the whole Animal Kingdom.
Founded in 1828 as a teaching collection, the Museum is packed full of skeletons, mounted animals and specimens preserved in fluid. Many of the species are now endangered or extinct including thylacine, the quagga, and the dodo.

The Grant Museum is part of UCL Culture, and we are a creative team at large and active across the university, curating and animating UCL content.

Our people manage museums, theatres, collections and facilitate engagement.
