Welcome to the Natural History Museum in London. As we begin our tour, we pass through Bag Check and the Contactless Donations queue, where an impressive giraffe skeleton stands tall next to a taxidermy giraffe, setting the tone for the incredible collection within.

Entering the grand hall, adorned with terracotta arches and columns, we notice playful terracotta monkeys scaling the walls, a nod to Sir Richard Owen’s rivalry with Charles Darwin.

Our first stop is the Dinosaur Gallery, featuring prehistoric skeletons, including the iconic Diplodocus. Next, we enter the Mammals Gallery, displaying a diverse array of taxidermy specimens and skeletons, from African elephants to cheetahs.

In the Marine Life section, a breathtaking blue whale skeleton is suspended from the ceiling, highlighting ocean biodiversity. The Human Evolution Gallery showcases life-sized models and fossilized remains, providing insight into our ancestors' evolutionary journey. Finally, we explore the Earth Sciences Gallery, filled with geological wonders like gemstones and volcanic rocks. Our tour concludes at the museum's café and gift shop, where you can relax and pick up a souvenir. As we leave, we admire the museum's stunning architecture and intricate wall carvings, reflecting the legacy of both extinct and living species.
