  • I really don't understand how someone can rate this museum any stars under 5. It is a great place, lots of animals to see, dinosaurs, sea life, amazing building, free entrance, what else would you want? I really love the place, no negative apart from the restaurants which can be expensive for some. But bring your own snack and you will be fine. Highly recommended for both children and adults. My daughter loved it. Everyday she is saying she wants to go back to see the dinosaurs. Make sure you allocate plenty of time as it is very big with many things to see. We spent 3 hours and didn't manage to see all of it. We will return to finish and visit the science museum. We have been on a working day so not so busy. Not sure about the weekends but might be busier than normal.

  • Amazing museum, free entry but with this often means plenty of people. Attend if possible on a working day, I probably wouldn't go on a weekend due to this factor. However, this place is literally incredible. Visited here at school, as an adult and still love it. Spectacular building, exhibitions etc. However, do note that some of the exhibitions inside (I wanted to see the wildlife photography exhibition) but for one adult ticket it was almost £30!

  • A truly marvellous museum amongst marvellous museums. Grand, impressive and well stocked with many of the wonders of nature. Some of it seems a little dumbed down (like the volcano zone) and when the crowds start pouring in - drawn perhaps as much by (that rarity in London) the free entry as by the wonders within - it can be as busy as any tube station in the rush hour and just as (im)polite. A fantastic destination and highly recommended. But I would happily pay £50 - £100 to view this museum on a limited attendance evening (say 1000 people), so I could soak in the exhibits without being bumped, rushed or pushed in front of.

  • Words don't often escape me, but trying to find ample ones to describe this place, they do. I go here as often as life allows, and I am left in awe each and every time I walk through the front doors into the majestic entry hall - greeted by the sight of Darwin himself. There's something for everyone, and defy anyone to not lose themselves here for hours on end. Easily the best money vs. time investment in the whole of London (it's free!)...

  • I've adored this place for many years and will continue to do so! One of my favorite places to visit in London. Magnificent building and museum that is great for people of all ages. Food is a bit on the pricey side so I tend to bring my own lunch.
