An anthropological museum set in 16 acres of landscaped gardens, the Horniman has a traditional natural history gallery – dominated by a bizarre, overstuffed walrus – where the exhibits are displayed in traditional cases with no computer touch-screens in sight. There's also an aquarium, a collection of around 1,600 musical instruments with an area where people can play some of them and a permanent gallery dedicated to African, Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian art. The museum provides extensive facilities for families, including a nature trail, weekend workshops and a hands-on base where children can touch museum objects.
