Booth Museum of Natural History
Published On July 21, 2015 | Museums & Galleries
The Booth Museum is all about birds, butterflies, fossils, and bones. Founded as a Victorian collector’s private museum, the Booth Museum now brings natural history to life with interactive displays and ‘hands on’ activities. The museum was founded in 1874 by naturalist and collector Edward Thomas Booth, who was passionate about natural history and especially ornithology, the study of birds. Explore his pioneering dioramas, and over 300 cases of fascinating natural displays. Look out for bears, birds, a dodo skeleton, and even a mermaid!
