The Natural History Museum has begun to move more than 20 million specimens into its new state of the art Darwin Centre. The Darwin Centre will open to the public on 15 September 2009 although it is estimated that to move the museums Lepidoptera (butterfly and moth) collections alone will take more than six months. The new Cocoon building will have tightly controlled environmental conditions to protect specimens.
