  • A very impressive museum. The Natural History Museum is set up very well for children. I visited on a Saturday, which was (as expected) very busy, particularly with young families visiting. Try and get there as early as possible to beat the line up. I arrived at 10:30am and it was fine, however by midday it was the line was very long. The building is beautiful. The ice rink also looked like a lot of fun.

  • The Natural World displayed at its finest. Highly educational for all ages. Extremely interactive. Packed with fascinating stuff. Free entry - contributions encouraged. Easy access. Fabulous ice-rink livens up the cold winter months.

  • This museum is more than perfect. I love all the section. Dinosaurs, birds, fossils, all creatures... There is earthquake simulation from Kobe Japan. You can feel the earthquake higher than 7 Richter. I like world's treasures section as well. I want to visit again and again. Highly recommended.

  • One of my favourite places to visit as my Nan always brought me here as a child, but even now I’m older it’s still as good and enjoy bringing people here for a wander. Great for all ages it’s free to get in (although is an option to donate :) ) amazing choice and quality in the cafe definitely a must do in London!

  • It was really good. I got to see and learned about some animals that I never knew about. It's amazing to see the good job that have been done there. It is important to visit places like that, especially with kids, they will always love it. I got to see the human body and it way of functioning. The museum is really big, I didn't get to visit the whole place. I love it
