Hintze Hall

Natural History Museum, London

Hintze Hall is the gateway to the Natural History Museum, for years dominated by well-loved exhibits such as ‘Dippy’ the diplodocus. Casson Mann’s challenge was to find a new vision, one which celebrates the scientific legacy and unique architecture of the Natural History Museum, and takes it into the new century. Casson Mann’s displays, opened in 2017, inspire wonder and curiosity, while working in concert with the proportion and scale of the stunning Romanesque building. Most radically, there is a new emphasis on authentic objects. The diplodocus cast is replaced with a spectacular, blue whale skeleton, suspended centrally in the Hall.
