“Lots of Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

Many great displays and sections. This museum would be fun for adults and children. My only complaint is that some theories are presented as fact.

“Brought out the Explorer, Scientist and Kid in me!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

This museum brought out the kid in me, as well as the scientist, explorer and nature lover in me!

What a cool place, filled with a lifetime of interesting exhibits and in a really impressive building to boot!

Like so many of London's museums, it is free to enter, which is a huge bonus especially since London can be so expensive.

“Fun/Free/Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

We took there our 17 months old son. What a great time he had! His favorite exhibition - mammals. Starting with a little mouse, and ending with the whale. He was very excited. It was fun watching him, and watching all the exhibitions. A little advice for parents, be prepared for many, many hours of walking. We weren't, I had to carry my little one everywhere. Taking a stroller is a way to go. A perfect example that fun does not to have be expensive, wow, it can be free! I live in US, and it's disappointing that we have to pay for everything.

“So cool!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

Both entrances to this place are AMAZING. Whether it's the huge dinosaur skeletons or the escalator into Earth's core. The exhibits are pretty neat, and the collection of taxidermied wildlife is extensive. A good day out for kids, for sure! Just avoid the gift shop if you don't want to buy more than you thought!
