"Yanni's study, beautifully illustrated, is deeply concerned with the visual and with the material quality of things, and through detailed case studies of natural history museums provides a highly readable account of the relationship between science and architecture in Victorian England." -- Tim Barringer, Victorian Studies
"Yanni has enriched immensely our understanding of these buildings, and all architecture designed for display." -- Annmarie Adams, CAA.Reviews
"Yanni's thorough, scholarly work focuses on a very specific slice of mid- to late-19th-century British history: the construction of buildings for the display of natural history collections. Yanni writes as much social history as architectural history, describing the evolving impact of Darwin's evolutionism as the field of natural history emerged as a distinct discipline." -- Choice
"A fascinating cultural study." -- Susan Morgan, Studies in English Literature
"Very readable and beautifully illustrated." -- Nicolaas A. Rupke, Albion
"Nature's Museums will convince the reader that however stolid and self-assured an old museum may seem, its past conceals a local story of vision, conflict, and compromise." -- Mary P. Winsor, ScienceRezension:
"The Victorians are celebrated for their science and their spectacular public buildings. Nature's Museums unites these concerns in an exciting and original analysis. It is a major contribution to our understanding of the history of public architecture, scientific practice, and the cultural life of the Victorian era." -- Jim Secord, University of Cambridge
