From 13 July: Life in the Dark
Dive into the planet's darkest corners and deepest sea beds at the Natural History Museum's exhibition Life in The Dark, to discover how creatures such a foxes, bats and boa constrictors use their senses to survive their murky and challenging habitats. The museum explores how such gloomy surroundings sustain biodiversity without the sun's rays. If you're struggling to imagine what it's like to enter a bat cave, or sink into the sea's inky depths, Life in the Dark has the answer: visitors enter immersive environments that recreate the experience of entering a cave and swimming with deep-sea creatures. As the exhibition's professor Geoff Boxshall explains: 'Even in the absence of light, life has found a way."

To 16 September: Sensational Butterflies
See hundreds of live butterflies inside the butterfly house.
