One of my favourite places in this rotten city and the only remaining university zoological museum in London, Robert Edmond Grant's Grant Museum will finally, finally re-open its doors after a 8-month relocation and reorganising process. Saying that I'm excited is a massive understatement.
Founded in 1828, the museum now contains 68,000 specimens - skeletal remains, taxidermied and formaldehyde-preserved creatures.
The museum will re-open in a former Edwardian library on Tuesday, March 15, 2011 from 1 - 8 PM at the following location:
Grant Museum of Zoology
University College London
21 University Street
London WC1E 6DE
Tel: 020 3108 2052

Admission is free and since it's open until 8 PM you have no excuse to miss this - particularly if you've never been to the Grant at its old location.
And if this all wasn't great news enough, the remains of a dodo have been found while moving into the new home.
