Whether you’re looking for a beautiful book, a fluffy toy, a fearsome dinosaur, a genuine rock or mineral, you will find all of this and much more in our MuseumShop (Tuesday to Sunday).

For a great gift or a cheeky souvenir, pay a visit to the MuseumShop! Your purchases also contribute towards the development of our exhibitions and to the research that lies at the heart of our Institute.

Our collection includes books (the Institute's publications, field guides, and children’s books), toys (ah, those dinosaurs…), genuine minerals and semi-precious stones, postcards, T-shirts, mugs, and other "Institute for Natural Sciences" branded gifts, all based around the themes of the museum’s halls and exhibitions.

The MuseumShop is open from 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday to Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. The MuseumShop is accessible without an admission ticket.
