Natural Sciences Collections
Our Natural Sciences collection includes biology and geology specimens that represent Hampshire's natural environment, past and present.
The biology collection includes specimens of preserved plants and animals collected over the last 150 years, mainly in Hampshire although it does include some specimens from the rest of the UK and abroad. The entomology specimens are primarily a British collection, but with a strong Hampshire bias.
The geology collection contains fossils from the Cretaceous, Paleogene and Quaternary rocks from Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. There are also fossil specimens along with rocks and minerals from classic Victorian British and International sites.
