As a traveler you sometimes will stick around a city longer then you could have imagined. After a month of hanging out in London there was only so much more new things I could really do.
Another museum? Ugh.
I’m not a big museum fan. In fact my body has a natural reaction minutes within entering one. I yawn a lot.
Only because I had nothing to do, it was free, and I happened to walk right past it, did I even enter. They call it the Natural History Museum. The main reason to go is since it’s free and if you are from outside of a country that has no dinosaurs on display. As far as I know, that’s most of them. Ask for the ‘Age of the Dinosaur’ exhibit. And of course, remember to make sure your cheap travel insurance policy has not expired. You’ll need it. Dinosaurs!
In this section of the museum their is a pre-built path where you can walk at eye level with the fossils.
Roar goes the dino
From what I hear now it costs £10 to get in but nobody was asking for tickets when I walked through. I suppose that pays for the life-size animatronics.
You will find some usual basic dinosaur data on the walls. I don’t suggest you read it. Instead you can scan the blown-up illustrations. Some of the ‘facts’ presented are a bit ambitious. For instance, one wall explains that dinosaurs ruled the Earth for 250 million years. You can argue that is true the same way you would argue that birds rule the earth now. The dinosaurs that did exist that far back were the avian sort.
Fun reading in the museum
But since you should have gotten your history lesson in school just stand in awe of the recreated dinosaurs and watch their fluid movements.
