Not only is the Natural History Museum an iconic landmark, but a passport to the wildest parts of the world and millions of years of history. Prepare for a day out where no gob will be left unsmacked!
The Museum is home to over 80 million amazing plants, animals, fossils, rocks and minerals. Begin your dive into it all by paying a visit to their star resident: an enormous, animatronic T-Rex! He’s definitely worth having a family snap with, that is before travelling through a giant suspended globe or testing your skills as a scientist in the education space.
Kids under 7 will be given a backpack stuffed with pens, paper and games to better get to grips with the many fantastic beats. Families can then take a free, behind-the-scenes tour and meet a brilliantly gross and totally fascinating giant squid.
