The Grant Museum of Zoology

One of the first places I visited when I first came to London, was the Grant Museum of Zoology, back when it was located beneath the Darwin building off Gower street. It’s unique collection of around 67,000 always seemed to deserve a grander location. And, thankfully a few years on it found one, above the ground and a little further up Gower street. I made my third visit to the new building this week, to join the Ortelius Drew drawing group in visually documenting the space and its specimens. Below are some of the drawings I made:
