"Where Did We Come From?" Natural History Museum Tip by CanuckMark

Natural History Museum, London: 113 reviews and 216 photos

Ever wonder how man came to be? Ever want to know what dinosaurs sound like when they sleep? Ever wanted to hear hundreds of out-of-control English schoolchildren running amok?..... Then go to the Natural History Museum.

The NH Museaum gets full points for having free admission - a totally rare occurence in London. Kudos to the museum.

Inside, you will find some of the best displays of all natural history museums. It is large. If you are a buff, then nothing less than a full day. If you have a limited schedule, take at least a couple of hours, and pick a few key attractions. The dinosaurs are worth it, as are the bugs.

If you don't like children, then think again as this is an established field-trip location for local residents, Scrooge.

After your visit, you are steps away from the V&A museum, another great attraction.
