Famed for its dinosaur exhibits, the Natural History Museum has undergone its largest expansion since it moved to South Kensington in 1881. The Darwin Centre is a £78 million state-of-the-art and facility with millions of incredible collections and a base for crucial scientific research.
Inside the new building is a dramatic new structure a 92ft high cocoon, housing 20 million insects and plants. There are hundreds of exhibits, films and interactive displays to see. Or why not explore the rest of the new wing to see world-leading scientists at work or one of the high tech visual displays?
The Natural History Museum is completely free and with so much to see and enjoy, there's no chance any of the family will be bored.
