The “Natural History of Horror” at the Natural History Museum

Now on view at Natural History Museum, from OCTOBER 10, 2019 through APRIL 19, 2020 (free with paid museum admission and Free for Members) is the Natural History of Horror exhibition.

We all share a strange curiosity for mysterious, eerie, and grotesque monsters. We love the thrill of intense, heart-pounding bursts of adrenaline that only horror movies can provide. In this new exhibition Natural History of Horror, you can explore the scientific inspiration for classic monsters from DraculaFrankensteinThe Mummy, and Creature from the Black Lagoon. Get a glimpse of rare movie props, film footage, hands-on activities, and museum specimens.
