I’m never sure which is my favourite museum in London. When we visit each one I change my mind and declare it a favourite, but The Natural History Museum always holds a special place in my heart. Walking in and seeing Dippy in the main hall takes me straight back to being a tot and the feeling of the enormity of it all. After countless visits, I still don’t feel that I’ve seen it all, or even touched the surface.
Here’s what B discovered on our last trip.
You can get to the museum by driving to Canary Wharf and then take the underground to Sother (sic) Kensington
There were 600 different kinds of dinosaurs.
We know that Tyrannosaurus Rex was a meat eater. You can tell because of his teeth.
The biggest animal that ever lived is the blue whale.
We can identify 4 different types of volcano:
- strato volcanoes
- shield volcanoes
- cinder cones
- volcanic lava domes
Earthquakes feel scary.
You can tell a smooth rock has travelled further than a rough one, because as it travels it gets smooth.
