We need your help – Horniman’s World Gallery Crowdfunding Appeal

The Horniman Museum and Gardens in Forest Hill has been working on 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.
