Natural History Museum, London: 115 reviews and 222 photos

  Musuem main entrance

The main attraction is no doubt the wonderfully extensive dinosaur exhibit. Top points for being informative without being too detailed/boring and use of various media to showcase the amazing animals that once ruled this planet.

Also includes a trunk slice of a 5000 year old (?) tree.

Other collections are equally extensive so if you want to explore everything, I would advise you to set aside a whole day for it.

Also take note of the interior of the building for the architecture, built of red terra cotta, is very thoughtfully designed too.
