Natural History Museum

Yesterday I spent the whole day at the Natural History Museum of London.  I was there before it opened and was glad to leisurely go through all the different kinds of exhibits. There is the whole section on human life. A rather amusing dinosaur section (which is where you'll find the most number of children, of course!). The large size moving T-Rex is the main attraction, besides the other smaller versions, in the same section.

The following skeleton of a dino, in the entrance lobby is a real eye-catcher.

The whole gallery on the mammals, fishes, reptiles, birds...

Then the whole large section about geology. Great display of different things.  Highly informative and interesting too.  (Of course, most children were not put through this wing and those that were were being dragged about by the parents!).

I liked the very structure of the building itself.  Lovely architecture.  Moreover it is being used also as a research and study centre.  School children, if they make arrangements early, get a very special tour and presentation, I was told.

The ice-rink outside the museum was a big attraction especially for children.  The early birds got a fairly free rink all for themselves. In the evening by the time I came out, there was hardly any space in the rink to move about.
