About The Horniman Museum and Gardens
The Horniman Museum and Gardens opened in 1901 as a gift to the people in perpetuity from tea trader and philanthropist Frederick John Horniman, to ‘bring the world to Forest Hill’. Today the Horniman has a collection of 350,000 objects, specimens and artefacts from around the world.Its galleries include natural history, music and an acclaimed aquarium, with a new anthropology World Gallery due to open in 2018. Indoor exhibits link to the award-winning display gardens – from food and dye gardens to an interactive sound garden, and an animal walk – set among 16 acres of beautiful, green space offering spectacular views across London. Visitors come time and again to participate in an exciting range of events and activities, sample the tasty delights from the popular cafe, and shop for interesting gifts.
