Natural History Museum houses one of the world's largest collections of natural history specimens. Here you can see 70 million specimens in the fields of botany, entomology, mineralogy, paleontology, and zoology. The vast collection makes it impossible to view everything on one visit, so consider a few of the highlights. You can choose from dinosaur skeletons, fossils, taxidermied specimens of large mammals, and artwork featuring exotic animals, among many other displays. Whichever exhibits you put on your list, make sure to include Treasures. This exhibit features specimens that the museum selected from its exhaustive collection for their scientific, historical, aesthetic, and cultural importance. You can visit permanent exhibits for free, but temporary exhibits have an associated fee.

This really is a world class place with some amazing things. The only thing is i prefer the old dinosaur ,which they replaced with the 🐋whale 🐳at the main entrance. To be honest it's not comparable. But it's still a fun and interesting place to explore especially the dinosaur section...just be careful you don't get eaten....(if this was helpful press the like button.😆 )Do you need a guide in real life, interested in discounts ,travel, tickets, eating 2for1 offers hire me..
Natural History Museum is an excellent day out for the family. We have been to Natural History Museum few times. Every time we visit here it is like exploring the place for the first time. The kids love the exhibits and specially Andy's Clock. The eating options here are good as well.
