Nature's Cathedral: A celebration of the Natural History Museum building

The Natural History Museum is home to many rare and exceptional natural wonders – but the magnificent Museum building is itself one of London’s most iconic attractions.


Envisioned by Alfred Waterhouse as a 'cathedral of nature', the building he created is one of Britain’s most striking examples of Romanesque architecture and is considered a work of art in its own right.


This picture-led exploration of the building celebrates Waterhouse’s unique architectural accomplishment inside and out and showcases many of the artistic gems it houses; not least its incredibly detailed engravings, sculptures and painted ceiling.
