An anthropological museum set in 16 acres of landscaped gardens, the Horniman Museum has a traditional natural history gallery – dominated by a bizarre, overstuffed walrus – where the exhibits are displayed in traditional cases with no computer touch-screens in sight. There's also a state-of-the-art aquarium, a collection of around 1,600 musical instruments and an area where visitors can play some of them, as well as a permanent gallery dedicated to African, Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian art. The Horniman Museum provides extensive facilities for families, including a nature trail, weekend workshops and a hands-on base where children can touch museum objects. The gardens offer spectacular views over London. The Nature Base explores the natural world with exhibits including the Horniman Museum beehive.
