Eton College Natural History Museum reviews
Usual artefacts stolen from around the world. Open to the plebiscite for the minimum amount of time required to gain tax breaks. Designed to reinforce to the entitled spawn of crooked bankers and arms dealers, the grandiosity of the British Empire, which they still think exists.
The museum is well done, you can feel amazed as if you were in the Natural History Museum in London although its smaller size. It was interesting to discover how many pupils of the Eton college later became great scientist in the past to understand the importance of this institution. Free admission on Sundays 2.30-5.00pm, easily reached by feet from Eton Central.
