Opened in 1881, The Natural History Museum is a fabulous museum and research facility dedicated to the natural world. The main hall used to feature the impressive skeleton of Dippy the Diplodocus, but that space is currently occupied by the skeleton of a diving Blue Whale whilst dippy embarks on a nationwide tour!
In the dinosaur exhibition you can check out impressive animatronic dinosaurs, including some ferocious velociraptors and a terrifying T-Rex! Then, travel to the Green Zone, where you can discover thousands of creepy crawlies and an array of stuffed birds.
Most of the specimens are housed in the Darwin Centre which holds 80 million different creatures over 17miles of shelving. A wonderful day out for children and adults alike.
