About Us

Crunchy on the outside: a blog for young entomologists from the Oxford University Museum of Natural History

Interested in insects? Perhaps you saw something we posted online, came to the museum, or maybe we visited you at school for an Insect Discovery Day. However you heard of us, if you’re interested in insects this is the place for you!

We’ll be sharing news about insects and the natural world, people who work with insects and help to protect them, the work behind the scenes at the museum, and new things for you to make and do.

Crunchy on the outside is also your opportunity to tell us what you would like from the museum, share your ideas and to get involved. We’d love to hear your ideas so please get in touch using the CONTACT US page if there is something you’d like to see.

Crunchy on the outside is part of the HOPE for the Future project at Oxford University Museum of Natural History, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The blog is run by Kate, Rodger, and Susie from the HOPE Learning team at the Museum.
