Temporary closure of museum during building work, Monday 28th January to June 2013
The Natural History Museum at Cumberland House is now temporarily closed to the public while we make improvements to the entrance and part of the ground floor. This work will create new gallery space and make the Museum more accessible to all visitors. Due to circumstances beyond our control it may be necessary to alter the period when the museum is closed, so please check here before your visit. Due to extended refurbishment work to the building and the displays, the re-opening date has been moved to June 2013. The exact date when the museum will reopen is not yet confirmed, but we will publish it here as soon as we do have confirmation. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during these improvements.
Please read the paragraph above about building work at the museum during January-May 2013.
