Natural History Museum| London

London isn’t only about the fancy restaurants and cute places with delicious tea and cakes. Sorry if my blog has only sent you that idea so far. There’s so much more to it and the Natural History Museum is just one example of that.

The museum is home to life and earth science specimens including some 80 million items within five main collections: botany, entomology, mineralogy, paleontology and zoology. Their collections are quite fascinating, especially given the age of the institution, many of the collections have great historical as well as scientific value, such as specimens collected by Charles Darwin.

You might recognise the museum by its exhibition of dinosaur skeletons, the large Diplodocus cast that dominated the vaulted central hall before it was replaced in 2017 with the skeleton of a blue whale hanging from the ceiling.

If you’re visiting London I would definitely suggest a visit to the Natural History Museum, not only because of the amazing and interesting things you will find inside but also because has an easy access and the entry is completely free.
