Grant Museum of Zoology

photo The Grant Museum of Zoology is definitely amongst my favourite museums in London. This little gem is jam-packed full of the most amazing preserved animals and skeletons. You can even adopt a specimen for as little as £ 30.00 and call a pickled cane toad your very own! Well, almost, I'm afraid you'll have to leave it in the museum but I'm sure you can visit as often as you want. Here are a few words from the museum's website: "The Grant Museum of Zoology is the only remaining university zoological museum in London. It houses around 67,000 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 the Tasmanian Tiger or Thylacine, the Quagga, and the Dodo." If you go, make sure not to miss out on it's star attraction, the jar of pickled moles!!
