The Treasures Gallery at the Natural History Museum shows 22 unique exhibits, chosen from the 70 million specimens in their collection.
Each has a fascinating story to tell and was selected to represent the Museum's scientific, aesthetic, historical, social and cultural worth.
The first edition of Charles Darwin's 'On the Origin of Species', a 4.5 billion year old meteorite, the most expensive book in the world and the fossil that sparked the discovery of dinosaurs, are just some of the amazing objects on display.
Bibliiotheque developed the interactive digital labels and environmental graphics, alongside Casson Mann who delivered the spatial design. The digital labels enable visitors to explore each object in much more depth, than a conventional captioning system.
This beautiful Gallery was officially opened by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge on 27th November. The gallery is open to the public from the 30th November. More details here.
