Entrance to both the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum is free for all the family. The Natural History Museum exhibits a huge variety of fossils, mammals from around the world and skeletons including the prehistoric T. Rex. Explore the different time periods dinosaurs lived, why they died out and what our scientific research has taught us about these giants of nature. Kids are thrilled by the simulator earthquake experience and to learn about the mysteries of our oceans. Teenagers are fascinated by everything from outer space exploration to human evolution and the scientific advances of DNA research. Outside in the Wildlife Garden, learn about British flora and fauna and the threats to native wildlife. This encourages parents and children to take their newly learned skills home and to school, supporting conservation projects. With many hands-on family exhibitions with interactive activities and school holiday programmes, everyone is promised a fulfilling day.
