  Entry into the Earth Galleries
by martin_nl

The Natural History Museum is divided into two sections, the Life Galleries and the Earth Galleries. In the Life Galleries you can find much the same as you would find anywhere else in the world in a museum of natural history. This includes stuffed animals, butterflies, insects, spiders etc. There is also a big section about dinosaurs which is very interesting, but also the most popular part of the museum, so mind the schoolkids!

More intersting in my opinion were the Earth Galleries. An escalator will take to to the top floor from where you have to walk down all the steps again as you pass the galleries about the earth. Very good exhibits is what will await you. It is much less crowded in this section of the museum, and all the more interesting, so if you have little time to spend skip the Life Galleries and focus on the Earth Galleries.
