Natural History Museum in London (27 May 07)


Visited Natural History Museum on my second visit to London. It is one of the 3 largest museums on South Kesington Road. The nearest undergraound/tube is at South Kesington. This is basically a home for more than 70 millions items of collection. It is particulary famous with its exhibition of dinosaur skeletons.

On the day we went, it was crowded with people.



With such a huge space and plentty of items to exhibit, this museum has to be divided into 4 zones (Orange, Blue, Green & Red). Each zone comes with different theme, exhibiting different items. (http://www.nhm.ac.uk/about-us/website-help/site-map/)




This is a replica of Diplodocus. It is believed to be one of the largest animals we had on earth.




Hahaha..... cute!

After visiting this great museum, I really felt impress! British government really put lots of efforts in collecting fossils and evidence for the purpose of science and education. Where else you could find such a fabulous place with free admission?
