Natural History Museum is a fascinating place to visit in London and it is free admission. The architecture of the museum itself is stunning with beautiful interiors. The museum is not huge but has a collection of more than 80 million specimens of zoology, mineralogy, botany, entomology and palaeontology. On the other hand, the museum has many different exhibits throughout the year based on different themes.
Natural History Museum has three entrances if you are wondering on the best route to get there. They are Cromwell Road, Exhibition Road and Queen’s Gate with the closest tube stations known as South Kensington and Gloucester Road. Both stations are approximately five minutes’ walk from the Museum’s entrance.
The museum is divided into 4 main zones: Red, Green, Blue and Orange zones. The exhibits are very educational and children would find it very interesting to explore the Dinosaurs gallery and to discover the fossils and learn about the first dinosaurs ever discovered. Dinosaurs gallery is located in the Blue Zone on the ground floor. Visitors are allowed to take pictures of the exhibits but tripods, lighting, or other equipment is not allowed during opening times. It is advisable to visit the museum during weekdays in order to avoid the big crowds during the weekends. (Year 2008)
