What's there to say about the Natural History Museum? Well.... it feels like you're entering the history of the world. Like all the history started here ;-)
Two: the entry is free...! Three: the building is large... like laaaarge. The architecture is beautiful. It's a great playing museum for children. The "dino-exhibition" is great fun for kids. Did you ever see a moving dino? A real-life-dino? You can see it in the NHM :-)
But for us, of course, we immediately ran towards the mineral collection and the vault. When Veronique and I entered the museum we were tackled by Jolyon & Ida Ralph :-)
We met here for a tour through the museum and for eating fish&chips in town :-) And that's just what we did... "Plan-Do-Check-Act" :-)
Well, the museum is almost like a real-world adventure... it's a maze! You definitely need a map&guide here and intuition not to get lost. We were lucky, we had Jolyon :-)
Just follow the pictures, and you will do the walk we did. Have fun!
