The Natural History Museum home to life and earth science collections comprising some 70 million items!


Turn your ordinary day into a full of science & fun activity with your family and friends. There are five main collections in the Natural History Museum: Botany, Entomology, Mineralogy, Paleontology and Zoology.

The Natural History Museum is renowned for its exhibition of dinosaur skeletons in a particularly the large gallery of Dinosaurs. Here we will find the big nature questions together. Who lived when, who are the survivors and victims. Best of those, where are they now? It's closer than you think!

Today we will be here to reveal all answers regarding with the Dinosaurs, creepy crawlies, jewels of the earth, mammals, our ancestors, volcanoes, earthquakes and many many more here in this shrine of natural sciences.

You will be taken care of by a scientist holding a Master of Degree in Science here today at London's most iconic museum.

You will love what you encounter with.

Itinerary

We will start with the Blue zone featuring the gallery of Dinosaurs, how they lived, how disappeared and who are the survivors and the victims today.
Then we will explore fishes, amphibians and reptiles. Next is Human Biology, images of nature and mammals. Time for a picture of blue whale model and we will see marine invertebrates. After a break in the cafe, we will proceed to Green Zone where Creepy Crawlies, Fossil Marine Reptiles, Fossils from Britain, Birds can be seen. Afterwards, we will proceed to Red Zone through the Earth sculpture via an escalator for magnificent Volcanoes and Earthquakes, Restless Surface galleries.
