Oh, museums… I’m not museum type of guy, but one place where I loved to visit those kind of tourist attraction was London. First there are quite a few museums there, and most of them are free to visit. One of the best is the Natural History Museum. As you can expect from the name of this museum it’s a place where you can learn everything about the history of our Earth, about weather phenomenons, basic physics principles and about the creatures that are roaming/roamed the Earth.
All seasonal events are held together with the permanent expositions in one of the four main areas of the Natural History Museum:
- Red zone – wonders of our planet including volcanoes, earthquakes and giant Earth mode
- Green zone – this is the Eco zone
- Blue zone – this is the place to see dinosaurs, whales and massive mammals
- Orange zone – this includes the Darwin Center and other small animals/fish that are part of our lives
The Natural History Museum in London is a magical place to visit especially if you have kids, as there’s a nice interactive way to learn, something completely different from learning in school experience. There are also dedicated tours for kids, so you’d better take advantage of them. You won’t be sorry, even if things get a little noisy then too many kids visit the museum, as we’ve experienced ourselves.

Here are a couple of pictures we’ve shot at the Natural History Museum in London. It’s hard to make a selection as 90% of the things we’ve seen there were amazing, even if you’re an adult. This is one stop I highly recommend to anyone visiting London, especially since admittance is free:
