Fantasic For Families

Housed in a medieval church, the Natural History Museum focuses on the rich natural history of north east Essex. Popular with local families, the displays and dioramas highlight key messages about wildlife habitats, biodiversity and climate change.

Sadly, due to current restrictions we are not able to reopen the Natural History Museum at this time.
