The Grant Museum of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy UCL was started by Robert Edmund Grant in 1827. Grant was appointed the first chair of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy in the United Kingdom at the newly founded University of London.

The collection is comprised of some 68000 specimens from taxidermy turtles through to pickled moles.

The museum has been in its current location since 1997 and will be leaving for new premises in July 2010.
