As an international metropolitan city, London is home to a huge array of various types of museums. In the tens of museums in London, the first one is obviously the famous Natural History Museum. I have decided to head to this place purely out of a fun misunderstanding. I kept thinking this is where the movie “Night at the Museum” was shot. in fact, the entire trilogy of the “Night at the Museum” was not filmed here.
The Natural History Museum is a historic Victorian building. Here you will find over 70 million items of global history and biological evolution on exhibition. The time frame of these items span from the Jurassic times, to the 19th Century when Charles Darwin publicized his Evolution Theory. The Natural History Museum is also a globally renowned center for research, specializing in the categorization, identification and preservation of biological beings. The building itself is also one not to be missed - it is a work of art typical of England’s traditional architectural style.
The Natural History Museum is separated into 4 main exhibition zones and are marked with different colors, which are orange, blue, green and red. Blue is known for its exhibition of items pertaining to the dinosaurs and mammals. It is also the most popular zone in the entire museum. Red Zone is the geology zone. Not only do you get to experience for yourself what an earthquake feels like and see a mock explosion of a volcano, you can also learn about the Big Bang and what our solar system would look like a couple billion of years from now. The Green zone is a zone for life and environment. Here you will primarily find fossils from birds, reptiles and minerals. The Orange Zone is the Wildlife biological garden and the Darwin center. A lot of free family events are hosted here regularly.
