THE HORNIMAN MUSEUM, LONDON

15/06/2011

The Horniman Museum is located in Forest Hill, South London, England. Commissioned in 1898, it opened in 1901 and was designed by Charles Harrison Townsend in the Arts and Crafts style. The museum was founded by Victorian tea trader Frederick John Horniman and contained his collection of natural history, cultural artefacts and musical instruments.  In 1911 an additional building to the west of the main building, originally containing a lecture hall and library, was donated by Frederick Hornimans son Emslie Horniman. This was also designed by Townsend. The Horniman specialises in anthropology, natural history and musical instruments and has a collection of 350,000 objects. The ethnography and music collections have Designated status. One of its most famous exhibits is the large collection of stuffed animals. It also has an aquarium noted for its unique layout.  TESS are pleased to have been chosen to supply our Spectrum demountable cases for the Horniman.
