It’s been ages since I visited the Horniman Museum and I didn’t remember it having an aquarium. When I found it did, we had to visit! I went for an annual pass with guest (my 4-year-old) for £43 without truly knowing what to expect. This did give us access to the Butterfly House, Aquarium and the Colour Exhibition though, so off we set. We were pleasantly surprised. ‘The Rainbow Revealed’ was the absolute highlight for us.
First stop, the Natural History Gallery:
There we found all kinds of stuffed animals and birds- including a tiger, a giant walrus, and a dodo. It also has displays explaining about evolution in the natural world. There is also a little interactive section set apart in the corner.
After being asked ‘Is that dead too?’ a number of times, I decided it was time to head to the aquarium.
