 During the 19th Century the Institution built up a highly significant collection of specimen’s including natural history, ethnography and antiques.

This often reflected distinguished members’ role in exploration of the wider world.

These collections were deaccessioned and transferred to form the founding collection of the ‘new’ museum in 1868.

Come and explore our unique and magical library.
