Some of you may have seen the scaffolding around the Horniman or noticed that there are a couple of galleries closed. The Horniman team has been working on developing a new World Gallery, celebrating what it means to be human. It will include more than 3,000 objects from around the world, works of art and fun things to touch, play with and even smell. The World Gallery will be a place of inspiration for visitors of all ages and will promote tolerance, respect and empathy.

Thank you to so many of you who have already supported and shared the World Gallery crowdfunding appeal. It’s got off to a great start but the Horniman still really needs your help to make this a success!

Please share the link with all your friends, family, neighbours and everyone you know who loves visiting, and help the Horniman reach the target of £30,000.
