Animal Attic

One of the Museum’s special places, Animal Attic is a unique and unusual venue that your guests will remember forever. This is a beautiful space with vaulted ceilings and a central platform that looks down on historic wooden cases enclosing Victorian taxidermy animals.

Like stepping back into the 1800s and the golden age of Museums, this gallery is an unforgettable place for evening cocktail parties or catered early morning breakfasts. Surrounded by thousands of creatures, from polar bears and wolves to humming birds and butterflies, networking and conversation comes easy.

Animal Attic is one of four world-class galleries of varying sizes and themes, which we open for private, catered events in the evenings (5pm till late) and early mornings (before 10am).
