    The Museum’s history goes back over 250 years. The Museum’s origins lie with Sir Hans Sloane, a physician and collector, who donated his collection of natural curiosities to the nation in 1753. The collection initially went to the British Museum but as the collection grew with other donations, Sir Richard Owen the Superintendent of the British Museum’s natural history collection persuaded the government to move the collection to a new museum.

    The site chosen for the new museum was occupied by the ‘ugliest building in London’ that had housed the International Exhibition of 1863. The new museum was built and although sections of the museum opened from 1883, the museum was not officially opened as the Natural History Museum until 1963.
