The Natural History Museum in London has numerous exhibits that focus on the beauty of the natural world. With exhibits ranging from dinosaurs to insects, there is no aspect of our planet this museum leaves untouched. In addition to their museum, they also thrive on school visits. The museum takes pride in educating young students on nature and hosts countless activities to engage them. They also have hands-on activities available for families, like their popular Explorer Backpacks, which comes with a safari hat, binoculars, and a map with which to explore the museum. The Natural History Museum is fun and engaging for all age levels and in order to keep the museum fresh and interesting, they rely on funding from donors and contributors.
Kate became the patron of the museum on April 19, 2013, because she describes herself as “someone who cares passionately about the natural world.” Her support and involvement will hopefully increase awareness for the museum and, in turn, increase donations to keep the museum running. Kate’s work with the museum thus far has been a unique blend of official engagements and science. In November 2012, Kate opened the Treasures Cadogan gallery in the museum, wearing the stunning green dress shown above. As for her involvement in the science aspect of the museum, she and Will took a trip to Borneo, in which they met with scientists from the Natural History Museum who were researching rainforest biodiversity. Once again, Kate excels at her patronage, becoming involved with numerous aspects of her charity work.
