Museum Check location

London is one of the best destinations in the world for culture with various free museums to visit. Located in Kensington, Natural History Museum is a treasure trove of a museum housed inside a huge Victorian-era building. This magnificent museum brims with almost 80 million exhibits and specimens, including minerals, bones, insects, fossils, and taxidermy. At the Natural History Museum, visitors can come face-to-face with a human-sized model of the fetus, an enormous sequoia tree, animatronic dinosaurs, and glow-in-the-dark crystals.

They can see a live leafcutter ant colony working at the Creepy Crawlies Gallery and experience the sensation of the earth’s moving at the earthquake simulator. Also, people can tour the museum galleries independently, see the scientists working at the Darwin Center, attend the drop-in talks and workshops, or purchase tickets for special behind-the-scenes tours. Besides its interactive maps of the site’s interior, the museum also features audio guides and behind-the-scenes information on its wide collections.
