The British Museum was founded as British Museum (Natural History) in South Kensington in 1887. Although commonly referred to as the Natural History Museum, it was actually officially known as British Museum (Natural History) until 1992, despite legal separation from the British Museum itself in 1963. Nevertheless, the standard acronym BMNH remained, due to its long established use.
