Natural History

Natural history is the study of animals and plants and other living things. It includes subjects such as geology, botany and zoology.

In 2007 Warrington Museum & Art Gallery collaborated with the Natural History Museum in London to produce an exhibition called ‘Natural Curiosity‘.


Geology is the study of the Earth’s structure, surface, and origins. The Museum’s geology collection consists of over 9,000 objects, two thirds of them fossils. Many of these fossils were originally collected by Warrington Natural History Society, such as the Chirotherium footprints from nearby Lymm,
