Wonder The Natural History Museum Poetry Book – Ana Sampson


The Natural History Museum has a collection of over eighty million objects and, behind the scenes of its twenty-eight galleries, it holds kilometres of preserved specimens, libraries of rare books and artworks, wonders gathered on some of the most famous voyages in history, rooms packed with pressed plants, warehouses teeming with stuffed animals and freezers full of DNA. As well as a museum, it is a state-of-the-art centre for discovery with over three hundred resident scientists and over ten thousand visiting researchers each year, investigating everything from dinosaurs to life on other planets.
This fantastic collection, made up of brand new and classic poems, speaks of the wonder of nature, and is illustrated with botanical drawings and engravings from the museum’s collections.
