    Natural History Museum
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    A working research institution as well as a fabulous museum, the Natural History Museum opened on the Comwell Road in 1881 in Alfred Waterhouse’s purpose-built Romanesque cathedral of nature. Enhanced by the splendid Darwin Centre extension in 2009, the original building still looks quite magnificent. The pale blue and terracotta façade goes some way to preparing you for the natural wonders within! You will meet the guide outside to start a journey through this fantastic museum that promotes the discovery and enjoyment of the natural world through exciting exhibits such as the Life and Earth Galleries, the wildlife garden and several geological collections. The Museum was awarded first prize in the Best for Free Activities and Best for Learning categories in London at the 2018 Hoop Awards, and it hosts about 70 million artefacts held in five different main collections: botany, entomology, mineralogy, palaeontology and zoology. You will meet the T-Rex in the Dinosaur Gallery, and one of the most historically important dinosaur skeleton ever found, a 122-129-million-year-old! The visit will continue with the collection of the Marine Reptile Fossils, Jurassic sea crocodiles, fossils that inspired stories of sea dragons, the stunning 25.2-metre-long blue whale skeleton, the giant sequoia tree and an amazing array of stuffed birds as well as the Earth sculpture and a “ride” into the centre of the universe! Plus, in the Museum Investigation Room, everything can be held, touched and examined under a microscope, so you will feel like a real scientist!
