Linnean Learning

Discover the natural world

The Linnean Society of London is the home of Carl Linnaeus in the UK. To learn more about him, his science and our collections, visit the 'Who was Linnaeus?' section.

Our tailored resources for teachers can be found in the 'Teaching' tab. The Biomedia Meltdown Competition is for Secondary schools in North London - check it out to see if you're eligible to be involved.

Linnean Learning is a hub for all ages. Our Lifelong Learning page has lots of links to where you can go to learn more as an adult. We hold Learning events in our building at Burlington House, Piccadilly - check out the Discovery Room tab for more details.

Finally, our Media tab is one of our pride and joys. We have created a variety of videos that delves into the life of Carl Linnaeus, other key figures in biology and the special collections we hold at the Linnean Society. Our latest addition to our media portfolio is an ongoing series of Podcasts - give them a listen and let us know what you think!
