About The Horniman Museum:
The aquarium opened in 2006 and is designed so that young children can easily see the displays which include tropical Coral Reefs as well as British Pond Life. There is a small annual pass charge for the aquarium but the museum galleries are still free to visit.
The taxidermy exhibits are quite spectacular - especially the walrus which was overstuffed as the taxidermist responsible didn't realize that a walrus has lots of loose skin, having never seen one before.
No trip to the Horniman Museum would be complete without a walk around the delightful gardens which were completed renovated in 2012. Enjoy the Sunken Garden for peace or head to the Bandstand to enjoy an outdoor concert. Or you can grab a coffee from the cafe and sit in the conservatory.
