long queues to be expected (we went Easter hols)with free entry but moved quickly. Loads to see/do so well worth a visit. Beautiful building , shame more people didn’t donate on way in... could spend full day in there, we just did half day then went exploring London

So just know that there is a long queue (line for Americans) to get into this free museum! The line moves quickly but expect to stand in line at least 20-30 minutes unless you go around 4-4:30. Very similar to the American Museum of Natural History, inclusive of the large whale hanging from the ceiling. It is very informative, interactive, and engaging. There are fossils of all sorts everywhere in the museum. I would caution those with small children to maybe avoid the Humans wing. There is a section on reproduction that gives accurate images of how humans reproduce and babies are made.

The kids were anxious to see the dinosaurs. Having seen a couple of Dino exhibits the expectation was high. In the end the Dino show was much poorer than other places we've been at but the museum itself was a pleasant surprise.

Both the interior and exterior of the museum are extraordinary, definitely a must-see. Some exhibits are wonderfully assembled (like the dinosaur exhibit! ) but others are painfully outdated (human biology exhibit). Still well worth a visit, despite the queue - especially because it's free!
