The Natural History Museum in London has long been a favorite destination for millions every year, from curious children to scientific researchers. This illustrated overview of the important milestones in the development of the Museum brings to life the times in which they occurred, and the excitement as well as controversy that surrounded many of these events. Included here is a look back at the 17th century physician, Sir Hans Sloane, whose vast collection of more than 71,000 items forms the foundation of the museum, and the text traces the facility's ever evolving role within the world of science.
