History of the Natural History Museum in London

It was founded in 1754 thanks to the generous contributions of Sir Hans Sloane, who was also responsible for providing objects for the British Museum. It moved to its present location in 1881. Sloane was dissatisfied with the natural history collection at the British Museum, and as a result he decided to help fund a second museum in a separate building to house more objects.

Human incompetence

Initially, the exhibits of the Natural History Museum in London suffered due to unqualified staff. George Shaw wanted to destroy any exhibited specimen not mentioned in a specific scientific text, and another clueless employee removed the labels from insects because they had been identified by a rival. One librarian at the Natural History Museum in London went to great lengths to prevent the public from seeing the exhibits at all.

Hintze Hall

This is the largest public gallery in the Natural History Museum in London, where you can see the massive blue whale skeleton, which is a symbol reminding visitors of our responsibility to protect the environment and our planet. The hall perfectly represents the history of our solar system and life on Earth as we know it. London's favorite dinosaur, Dippy Diplodocus, was also in Hintze Hall before the whale skeleton took its place.
