The Micrarium at the UCL Grant Museum of Zoology showcases some of the tiniest and most intriguing members of the animal kingdom. Most natural history collections have thousands of very small specimens kept in their storerooms that are rarely shown to the public. To right this wrong, the Grant Museum has created a display never seen in a museum before -- the Micrarium, an old office converted into a beautiful back-lit cave covered with 2,000 wall-to-wall microscope slides.
