The Natural History Museum is home to 70 million life and earth science specimens in five main collections: botany, entomology, mineralogy, palaeontology paleontology and zoology. It holds specimens collected by Charles Darwin. 

There are blue, green, red and orange zones within the museum. The blue zone covers dinosaurs, the blue whale, life, the planet, our environment and evolution. The green zone explores Earth’s ecology and the role meteorites have played in Earth's history. You also can meet a dodo. The red zone investigates the Earth and the massive forces that shape it, the minerals and elements we take from it, and how we can preserve it. The orange zone features the Wildlife Garden and let you see into the Darwin Centre.
