Famous for its astonishing displays of dinosaurs, the Natural History Museum exhibits all things related to life and earth sciences. It opened its doors in 1881 in one of London's most beautiful buildings, constructed specifically for the purpose. The edifice was designed by the architect Alfred Waterhouse in a neo-Romanesque style, covered in terracotta tiles. Note that entry into the museum is free of charge.
