About Us

The Horniman Museum and Gardens is an inspiring, surprising, family-friendly, free attraction in South London’s Forest Hill.

We’ve been open since Victorian times, when Frederick John Horniman first opened his house and extraordinary collection of objects to visitors.

Since then, our collection has grown and includes internationally important collections of anthropology and musical instruments, as well as an acclaimed aquarium and natural history collection.You can even pick up, try on and play with some of our objects.

Our visitors come time and again to explore our free museum, take part in our activities and enjoy our 16-acre gardens; there is something fascinating and mesmerising to discover every time.
