Still Life

Just opened on Well Street in deepest Hackney, this private museum and curiosity shop brings the weird and wonderful of the natural world into the heart of the city. Think mammoth teeth and a full-mounted emu skeleton—oh, and the very anatomically correct back end of a zebra.

There are cool fossils, bugs, a collection of skulls, botanicals, and all sorts of oddities, most of which are available to buy as well. The contents are sustainably sourced and displayed in a pink and cream-colored, Wes Anderson-esque wonderland.
