Beard Family Trips & Vacations

London, England

October 26, 2008 - Natural History Museum


Pictures from the Natural History Museum:

We went to the Natural History Museum the first thing in the morning.  However, we soon discovered that it was a popular location this day since it was raining outside.  We stayed for about an hour and then decided to try the Victoria & Albert Museum just across the road.  Turned out to be a better decision with somewhat less crowds.

Rick Steves' book had suggested bypassing the long line at the front entrance and going into the rear entrance instead.  This meant only a five minute wait through security instead of at least 30 minutes.

This is a world globe that you have to pass through going up the escalator.

Reaching the top of the escalator.




One of the first exhibits was on earthquakes.  The Kobe Supermarket is a recreation of a small market where the floor shakes as if an earthquake is happening.

Various exhibits on prehistoric sea creatures.




The Creepy Crawlies exhibit was popular with kids.
