Well worth a visit

Happened upon this lovely museum on a random walk around Forrest Hill last Saturday. An absolutely lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Intriguing, free, thoughtful, and well worth a visit. Go early.

It is many, many years since I visited the Horniman Museum and it has improved significantly. Always interesting and quirky, the exhibits have been elaborated and described more accessibly, and the collections/exhibits extended. Whereas I understand that charging to see the fish (used to be free) and butterflies is perhaps an economic necessity, I do NOT agree with the exploitative prices in the cafe! The value of the food - £8.50 for a dried-up sandwich, lonely on a bare plate - is grotesque and put a serious dampener on an otherwise excellent day out. Please, Horniman, do not affront your guests with these things and, visitors, be sure to take a packed lunch, or even skip down to the Tesco Express(!!) 50 metres down the road for a much better snack at one-fifth of the price! Grumble done, it's a brilliant place to spend two or three hours inside. The gardens are particularly well laid-out and well worth a wander. A very fine place for a picnic (weather permitting!)

Fantastic day out.
oct. de 2021 • Familia
Always an amazing visit.

The Hornimans museum and its associated attractions (butterfly house, aquarium etc) has always been enjoyable for me and my family to visit.

There’s enough fascinating exhibits for the museum enthusiasts to really enjoy and observe, but they’re also fun and varied for people who like to have a quick look and move on.

The museum is always spotless, and staff friendly when approached.

Highly recommended.

Lovely Place

We had a great visit here. The displays are interesting, the cafe was good and the gardens are lovely. The butterfly house was nice, not many butterflies out but fun anyway, the alpacas and other small animals were sweet, and the Sunday market was a bit of extra entertainment. A good day out!

Don't miss the gardens!
ago. de 2021
This is a small but very popular museum in suburban Forest Hill. It seems to focus on the themes of the natural world and human cultures, spread across two main exhibition halls filled to the brim with showcases full of the likes of stuffed birds and animals, animal bones, musical instruments, and wonderful curiosities from various parts of the globe. You’ll see the huge old walrus that’s been there for decades, and the eyes of the stuffed primates seemingly following you around, and wonderful beadwork on tribal masks. Apparently there’s some 350,000 items for you to cast your eyes over.

Entrance is free, but you need to book a time slot online so that appropriate volumes of visitors can be maintained within the museum, as a Covid safety precaution. Unfortunately it was a bit of a free for all once inside the museum, with huge groups of adults blocking passageways, and children racing around unsupervised and unruly. As we’d been to the museum many times previously, we thus didn’t linger in the exhibition halls and focused this visit on the gardens. And what a riot of colour they were. The 16 acres of beautifully manicured gardens, set against the backdrop of the skyline of Central London, were a feat for the eyes and a beautiful kaleidoscope of summer colour. The Sunken Garden was a tranquil delight of yellows and oranges, and the Grasslands Garden was ablaze with spectacular flowering specimens native to the prairies of North America and the grasslands of South Africa. They were full of bees and butterflies, and a delight to wander and to just sit awhile. It’s a beautiful part of the museum complex that it’s often overlooked. Of course, expect seasonal variations, and understand that it may not be too colourful in winter.

The museum is not open on Wednesday. The gardens are open daily until 18:50. There’s a cafe at the museum, with seating in the fabulous Victorian conservatory. But take a picnic and enjoy it in the garden if weather permits.

I’ll be back

What a fantastic little museum! I can’t believe I’ve never been before. I’m already looking forward to my next visit.

I took my 10 year old son on a school inset day. I thought we’d spend no more than a couple of hours there and to be honest, I only booked the trip to avoid my son spending an entire day playing on tech.

But to my amazement, we spent five hours at the Horniman and the time just flew by! The aquarium was a particular hit - well worth the small additional entrance fee. We enjoyed the butterfly house and I practically had to tear my son out of World gallery! There’s loads of interactive elements that encourage you to engage with the information on offer. But what makes this museum so engaging is its eclectic nature. The themes are diverse and include natural history, black music in the UK, cultures of the world and the evolution of primates (to name a few). This diversity creates an environment where there really is something for everyone. It’s really very special.

All the staff we encountered were polite, professional and pleasant. I’d like to give a special shout-out to the girl in the butterfly house who was a mine of information.

There’s a lovely cafe serving a good range of food, but for those on a budget there’s plenty of tables for eating a picnic lunch, including a beautiful Victorian style glass house/conservatory next to the cafe for indoor eating. The gardens are beautiful and I’d love to explore them in more detail during our next visit. Sadly, we ran out of time on this visit.

I’d like to go back on a weekend, as I believe there are regular events that take place in the gardens. There’s also a market in the gardens on Sundays which would be right up my husband’s street.

If you haven’t been to the Horniman before, I’d recommend you give it a shot.

A well organised museum that caters for all. The museum is situated at the entrance to the gardens. The main exhibition always has something on. They have the main museum, aquarium and exhibitions which run throughout the year. With Covid this led to online bookings in order to manage the flow of users. There is an animal walk and the butterfly house in the gardens. There is also a lovely cafe in which I must recommend the soup of the day. If you are on a budget then the gardens have more than enough seating areas if you carry a packed lunch.

Absolutely fantastic museum
ago. de 2021 • Familia
What an amazing place! Can’t believe we haven’t been here before. We had tickets for the aquarium at 10:30 and parked directly opposite the museum just before and had no issues finding a space. Lovely packed little aquarium with lots to see. The rest of the museum has so much to see and do, it really is amazing. Very easily accessible with the pram and no bits were out of bounds. We visited the animal walk through, which even though is much smaller than we expected, was very clean, lots of space for the animals and well set out. Lots of picnic benches or deck chairs out side to have a picnic. The music garden is also a wonderful addition, especially for young pre schoolers. We had a walk around the gardens and headed back inside for another mooch around. We actually spent longer here than when we went to the natural history museum. The whole place was very clean, sanitiser stations everywhere where (and actually full) and almost everyone adhering to the one way systems. The toilets were very clean and there was even a baby feeding room, all though very small.
We can’t wait to come back!

What a fantastic museum. Some fascinating exhibits in both galleries, and sensitively curated to help explain the Victorians' intentions. What was lovely was seeing so many young children enjoying the place alongside older families, couples etc.
