  • A really great place to visit even if you live in London. My family has been members for over 10 years now and enjoyed every one. Only come occasionally but can get your money back in just one visit. Free entry to exhibitions and skip the queue! The museum is a beautiful building and has a fantastic collection mainly kept in the Darwin Centre, which you can visit. I have a few snapshots but there are already plenty so didn't have too many. If you were going to go for a mega day out you might be able to squeeze in the natural history museum l, science museum, and V&A. All worthy visits!

  • Had a fantastic day our here today. Very much enjoyed the exhibits especially the dinosaur one. The whale models were interesting too. A great day out, didn't use any facilities or cafes so can't comment but they looked clean on passing and there were plenty of people using them. 3 decent gift shops with a lot of different stock in them.

  • We entered the museum via the Queens Gate entrance and the queue for the security check was noticeably shorter than on Exhibition Road. We visited with our three year old and we checked the buggy in for free at the cloakroom. There is so much to see with the dinosaur section being the biggest hit. Plenty of places to eat at reasonable prices although there is a picnic area downstairs. Will definitely come back

  • Hugh museum which can easily take you the whole day to browse through properly. Exhibit includes dinosaurs, animals, underwater creatures, plants and everything relating to nature. Free admission. Can be crowded but the queue to go in moves quick. Near to Gloucester tube station.

  • London was the first city I ever visited, when I was 18. At that time Natural History museum was the most amazing thing. 15 years later I am living in London. It never stops amazing me. Totally recommended place to be (One of the three must-go museums!)
