Attractions & Experiences


Academy of Taxidermy Museum of Natural History

Museum of Natural History Academy of Taxidermy

Guildford's best-kept little secret ... a mind-blowing menagerie of mounted animalia awaits you, proudly presented in the heritage-listed former Regent Picture Theatre.

Hundreds of exhibits presented by master taxidermist, Michael Buzza draw the attention of local and foreign visitors from different age groups. For over forty years Michael has been preserving and collecting the marvels that nature has created.

Taxidermy specimens utilised by educational institutions, marketing companies, video and film production houses, museums and more. A constantly replenished collection of world fauna representatives (birds, mammals, reptiles, marine life) and  a life-size dinosaur model collection are on display.

Located within five minutes walking distance from Guildford Train Station, halfway to the Visitor Centre, the Museum is happy to host parties for special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries. The museum's atmosphere, together with its interior architectural design will create unforgettable memories for you and your guests.

A real working museum, happy to welcome you!
