While we were in London we took the opportunity to visit the Natural History Museum.
This camel confused the kids... a three headed camel? :)
But we loved seeing and reading about all the dinosaurs.
The kids have always had favourite dinosaurs, ones that they'd love to keep as pets :) of course!
They loved finding them in the museum. Obviously, it wouldn't be much fun for them to keep a skeleton as a pet, but then again probably more fun than a ferocious living dinosaur!
We walked around these enormous skeletons imagining what life would have been like all those years ago.
We were surprised by how many dinosaur names and facts the children knew! It was like having our own personal museum guides :)
They still learnt a thing or two, too
Feeding the t-rex!
Giant sloth. Wow!!
We walked into the bird room. This room was sad. Most of the birds were from the same collector and he just killed and stuffed the birds including almost extinct birds :(
Look how many birds in this one display!
This skeleton (below) was found by a woman who found her first dinosaur at age 11
The mammal sections was incredible. Watching nature shows and seeing whales on TV is one thing, standing next to a life size model is something else!
We spent ALL day in the museum! There was so much to see.
