We headed to the Natural History Museum one day specifically to see an amazing wildlife photography exhibition that was on there. I am not a big museum fan...I get tired and bored pretty quickly, so just planned to see the pics and move on.

The first thing that blew me away was the building the houses the museum - it is magnificent. I have walked past it several times in the past - can't believe I never noticed it properly!! The inside is pretty special too.

This museum is the UK's national museum of nature and is filled with many amazing collections to interest even the most anti-museum person. I am very keen to get back to check out the dinosaurs...

It is a great place for the kids and there are several cafes for that mid - tour caffeine hit.

Oh, and the photography exhibition was excellent!

Can't believe it took me nearly 3 years to make it to the Natural History Museum - and even then I barely saw anything!! It is definitely on the list to get back to - soon!
