Our blog discusses news, events and the Horniman's collections. We hope that anyone with an interest in the Museum and Gardens can find and contribute to discussions on these pages. We'd like your help to ensure that these pages won’t need a lot of moderation.

To that end, we ask that you do the following:

  • Please do not insult other readers or commenters. Personal attacks are unacceptable. If necessary, you can criticise others’ arguments, but these are very much your own personal opinions.
  • When writing comments, be aware of what others might find offensive. Comments which are disrespectful of other cultures, beliefs or lifestyles will not be tolerated. 
  • Racist, sexist, homophobic comments (or any other type of hate-speech) will be removed.
  • We will remove any comments that are overtly commercial.

We will remove comments which do not follow the above rules. Anyone who continually breaks the rules will not be able to comment.

We would like to use interesting comments in other areas of our work, such as in publications or our website. If you have questions about this policy, email web@horniman.ac.uk
