Number of visitors to the Natural History Museum in London, England 2008-2018 The Natural History Museum in London has seen fluctuating visitor numbers in recent years, with a drop after 2014/15, though things have started to pick up again. The museum continues to be one of London’s and the UK leading tourist attractions, and it’s also a science center.
In a museum

The Natural History museum, like many others in London, doesn’t charge for admission, which contributes to its enduring popularity among visitors. It is funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). Of the museums supported by DCMS, the Tate Gallery Group museums had the most visitors, followed by the British Museum and the Science Museum Group. Government-funded museums also enjoy attendance from overseas tourists as well as UK nationals. The British Museum and the National Gallery were some of the most popular for international tourists.

Museum visitors

With the abundance of museums to visit in London alone, going to them is a common pastime. Among age groups, those aged 25-44, 45-64 and 65-74 tended to show the highest visit rates. In terms of frequency, on average more than half of the population had not visited a museum, though a third went 1-2 times a year.
