A delightful place to bring the kids, especially on those bleak overcast days. I always try to make education fun for my children and what better place than the Natural History Museum!

Only open for a few hours on Sunday afternoons, but a s a nice place to while an hour or so away especially if the British weather is true to form and it rains! Particularly interesting to see evolution displays and all the moths.
