Our collections of specimens, books, manuscripts, artworks and artefacts are of huge historical and scientific importance, and achieved ‘Designated Status’ in 2014 as awarded by Arts Council England.

AdoptLINN aims to support the preservation and use of our outstanding collections in research and outreach to inspire and delight people of all ages. Adopting on behalf of, or in memory of, a special person is a wonderful way to celebrate their passion for Natural History.
