Natural History Museum

Part museum, part research centre, the NHM opened in a Romanesque palazzo in 1881. Starting with the giant Diplodocus skeleton in the entrance, this is a place to keep kids entertained for hours – whether by crowd-pleasing dinosaur animatronics, a 90ft replica of a blue whale, or stuffed birds and creepy crawlies. Arranged into colour-coded zones, the museum’s collections cover all aspects of the natural world, from the ever-changing planet, to ecology and evolution. Since 2009, the state-of-the-art Darwin Centre has housed a vast collection of bottled specimens, not to mention the centre’s researchers, who are now visible to the public in the unique eight-story Cocoon. (Don’t forget to check the NHM’s website for details of their monthly Dino Snores sleepovers.)

    Skating Into Winter

    Until Sunday 7th January 2018

    It's that time of year again when The Natural History Museum bring out their now iconic ice rink in front of the grand museum. It's hard to remember a time when this wasn't a fixture on the Winter calendar but as night falls and the lights come on, it's a beautiful sight to behold as you skate round and round.
