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 Resources' tab and 'The Biomedia Meltdown Competition' is an art-science project for secondary schools in North London.

Linnean Learning is a hub for all ages. Our Discover Learning page has lots of information about our events both in our home in Burlington House, Piccadilly, and elsewhere.

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!
