Take a virtual stroll through the exhibition

Get a sneak peek of the Fantastic Beasts™: The Wonder of Nature exhibition.

Step inside the world of Fantastic Beasts™: The Wonder of Nature at the Natural History Museum.

From roaring dragons to mischievous Nifflers, the wizarding world created by J K Rowling is full of remarkable animals.

Magizoologist Newt Scamander™ is an expert on these magical creatures and the author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them™. We invite you to follow the pages of Newt's book and explore the wonder of our natural world through the magic of fantastic beasts.

Discover the real animals that are as extraordinary as any mythical creature. And, like Newt, see the need to protect them for generations to come.

People have told stories about dragons, merpeople, unicorns and sea monsters for thousands of years. But what inspired the tales of these remarkable creatures? Could strange encounters with dinosaur bones, narwhal tusks and giant squid lie behind such stories?

Like many explorers and naturalists, Newt Scamander™ has travelled the world seeking fantastic beasts to study and observe.

Leave the mysterious museum behind the head off on an expedition into the unknown. Prepare to meet fantastic beasts with magical powers and try to spot the animals that share their amazing abilities.

From nature's most extraordinary dancers to its champions of camouflage, our world contains a remarkable diversity of animals to discover.

Newt Scamander™ protects and cares for fantastic beasts that are threatened, mistreated or misunderstood by other wizards.

In our world, human activity is endangering the future of many animals, with tens of thousands of species at risk of disappearing forever.

Now that you have encountered fantastic beasts in the wild, discover what we can do to save them. Meet some of the Earth's most vulnerable animals and find out how remarkable people around the world who, like Newt, are working to ensure we value and respect the creatures that share our planet.

'It is my fondest hope that a new generation… will find in its pages fresh reason to love and protect the incredible beasts with whom we share magic.' – Newt Scamander™
