The Prince Room houses our natural history collection. It is named after the late naturalist Peter Prince, who worked extensively on South Georgia. In the 2006/7 season the room was redecorated and a large new display case was installed, providing a fitting home for the excellent taxidermy and skeletal displays. Highlights of the room include a bull elephant seal skull, a foetus humback whale and a wondering albatross chick on the nest.
