Ice Skating

Natural History Museum Ice Rink

Natural History Museum Ice Rink

Set against the backdrop of Hintze Hall, the Ice Rink is one of the most magical places to be this winter - at 2015 prices!


Experience the thrill of skating surrounded by fairy lights nestled in frost-covered trees, with the smell of mulled wine and toasted marshmallows in the air.


Whether you can dance on ice like Torvill and Dean, or your skating moves are more akin to Bambi, a visit to the Museum’s Ice Rink is a must this festive season.


The Café Bar has a bird's-eye view of the rink and is open daily until the Ice Rink closes. Non-skaters are welcome.


Make it an essential stop during your visit to meet friends and warm up with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and mulled wine. Or take your pick from a range of delicious meals and a variety of wines, beers and soft drinks.
