Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

We already visited a lot of zoology musea and this one was top 3 without a doubt. Beautifully located in a former medical library, it has a big ass collection of animals and bones. Highlight: the section about extinct animals with even a few dodo bones and quagga skeleton! You can browse around for hours! Also very kid friendly with a quiz and a photo challenge. We would recommend this highly!

What a quaint little find this museum is. Free entry, no need to book, not at all pretentious. Close to Warren Street tube station. Opens at 1.00pm but plenty of places to get some lunch in the vicinity.

Filled with lots of animal skeletons, models and stuffed animals. Also various jars of pickled animals which I confess made my stomach turn!

Worksheets for children to find various animals. Very enthusiastic guides who seem very knowledgeable.

Most definitely worth a visit. The museum is small but housed in a beautiful building. Wasn’t busy as most tourists head for the well known museums

This Museum is brilliant. Small, free and full of skeletons and specimens. From a jar of moles to an elephant heart, Croc skull to the extinct Dodo bones. Weird, Wonderful and Fascinating. Well worth a visit, be aware you won’t be here for hours.

My goodness. It was like being back in Mexico City for the ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations. All those skulls and skeletons and bizarre creatures in old jars and more stuffed animals than you could poke a stick at. But what a curious and bizarre little spot the Grant Museum of Zoology is.

Robert Edmond Grant founded the museum in 1827 as a teaching collection for the University of London, now the University College London. It opened its doors to the public in 1996. It’s all stuffed into one huge room, like a vast antique shop of animal bits, with skeletons peering down at you from the balconies above. It’s one of the most quirky little museums I’ve been to in a long time. What a place it is. Kids would love it! I loved it.

There’s a wall made up of over 2000 tiny glass bottles filled with the skeletons of mice collected from the Scottish islands; the other 2000 are not on display!g There’s a skeleton of the extinct South African zebra known as the quagga. The last quagga died in in 1883 and the museum’s skeleton is one of only seven in existence making it the rarest in the world (but it’s missing a leg so check your attics for old bones). There’s dodo bones, and the skeleton of a huge python. There’s bottles of animal brains, wallaby heads, and a wall made up of slide specimens of microscopic animals.

Whilst the room that contains the museum is quite small, you’ll need a good hour or so to peer into all the cabinets, displays and glass jars. Not everything is labelled. However, the lass at the desk at the time of my visit was knowledgeable, and answered my numerous questions about stuff in the display that had no accompanying information.

On week days the museum is open Tuesday to Friday in the afternoon, from 13:00 - 17:00, as it is also a teaching room for the university. It’s open slightly longer on Saturday, from 11:00 - 17:00. It is closed on Sunday and Monday. The museum is free to visit. It’s a short walk from Warren Street underground station, in the Rockefeller Building at 21 University Street.

If you are looking for a quirky little museum, this is your spot.

I came here with my daughter who is doing biology A-level. We loved it. Wonderous detailed specimens to oggle at. A lovely chap was there to answer questions.

I was so excited for this museum, it was top of my list to visit but unfortunately was thoroughly disappointed. The staff that were there when I entered weren’t very welcoming and asked why I was waiting in the foyer bit five minutes before they had opened. Five minutes before opening arrival I feel is a very reasonable amount of time considering I didn’t know what the wait time would be like for entry.
Upon entering there was hardly any information about the actual origin of the collection, very little about Grant himself and nothing really about where the collections had originated from. Very little context of Darwin etc. This is a great place to take young kids to enthuse them with specimens, however definitely not somewhere for anyone in the field to visit.
Some of the specimens weren’t labelled and/or the labels were in the wrong place. There was no order to the collections, you had freshwater in with saltwater species, starfish in with mammals…it was all very strange and is certainly not good classification for a zoology museum!
The descriptions under some of the labels was not accurate (can only speak for the marine and freshwater specimens, not any of the other collections) and there were many grammatical errors.

Sadly thoroughly disappointed as this place has so much potential.

A fantastic array of specimens presented in this collection. Definitely a shout out to the past when such displays showed what we know about animals - and is our basis to what we currently know. The room isn’t very large, but you’ll spend an hour easily just looking at what’s there. If you love biology or zoology, this is a place in your to visit list. Entrance is free. Enjoy!

It;s small, cluttered and weird. A jar of moles? Sure, why not. This is a jumble of zoological specimens--bats in jars, bugs in jars, a baby kangaroo in jars. Bones of long dead zebras, a crocodile skull...random, stacked to the ceiling Age-of-Discovery mess. The children here ran from one gamy thing in a jar to the next. I've been to a lot of anatomy museums and this was about the least memorable--like a trip to a crazy uncle's basement (or attic). But hey: free. And weird. And quick to see. Additional benefit: a perfect appetite killer!

Very interesting museum. Its quite small, but has a large number of interesting exhibits, however they are well shown, if a little crowded. The staff and volenteers were very helpful and informative

I had a couple of hours to spare and decided to spend it here. Found it to be very interesting and I really enjoyed the visit. Luckily it wasn’t too busy when I went, as I can imagine it being less enjoyable if too busy. Despite being a small size museum there is so much to see and I thoroughly recommend visiting.
