BBC News – Natural History Museum receives £5m donation

The Natural History Museum’s Central Hall is to be renamed following a £5m donation from philanthropists Sir Michael and Lady Hintze.

The gift from the London-based couple is the biggest single donation the museum has received in its 133 years. To mark it, the museum’s cathedral-like hall, which houses a huge replica dinosaur skeleton of a Diplodocus, is to be renamed the Hintze Hall.
