The Natural History Museum a world-renowned centre of research and home to life and earth science specimens.
Museums are free to enter and don't need to be pre-booked, but they do get busy. We recommend visiting early, ideally around opening time.
The Natural History Museum houses a collection comprising some 70 million items within five main collections: Botany, Entomology, Mineralogy, Palaeontology and Zoology. Many of the collections have great historical as well as scientific value, such as specimens collected by Darwin and the museum is particularly famous for its exhibition of dinosaur skeletons, including a large Diplodocus cast which dominates the vaulted central hall.
Visit the Museum's world famous dinosaurs - come face to face with our towering Tyrannosaurus Rex, and discover the skull of a Triceratops.
