    A new space that celebrates the microscopic members of the animal kingdom has recently opened at UCL’s Grant Museum of Zoology. Formerly an office, the Micrarium is a beautiful back-lit cave covered with wall-to-wall microscope slides. We went to chat to the museum’s curator, Mark Carnall, about why other natural history museums are misrepresenting the animal kingdom by missing out invertebrates and how the Micarium is righting this wrong.
