Horniman Museum

Location: Horniman Museum       Child: Free       Adult: Free

The Horniman Museum and Gardens, are inspiring, surprising, family-friendly, and a free attraction in South London's Forest Hill.

We've been open since Victorian times, when Frederick John Horniman first opened his house and extraordinary collection of objects to visitors. Since then, the collection has grown tenfold and includes internationally important collections of anthropology and musical instruments, as well as an acclaimed aquarium and natural history collection.

Unusually for such an important museum, you can see the collection up-close and face-to-face. You can even pick up, try on and play with some of the objects.

Visitors to the Horniman come time and again to explore the free museum, take part in activities and enjoy the 16-acre gardens - and they discover something fascinating and mesmerising every time.
