The Hunt


The Hunt


The Linnean Society of London will be part of a special two-day event to celebrate hidden treasures of Natural History around London.

The Hunt is free to play and takes place on 24 and 25 November from 10.00 to 16.00 each day. For The Hunt, drawings of 12 NHM specimens have been hidden across London in locations with natural history connections, encouraging you to seek out buildings with unexpected pasts, lesser-known museums and long forgotten menageries, from the Linnean Society to Battersea and the Tower of London. Visiting any one of the locations can give you a chance to win an exclusive evening party in the Museum for you and 25 guests by taking part in a free treasure hunt across London to celebrate the opening of the new Treasures gallery at the Natural History Museum.

All you need to do is regsiter online on the NHM website Here you can print out your personalised map and entry sheet, then follow the instructions.

We look forward to welcoming you into the Linnean Society of London and to showing you some of our hidden treasures!
