For one thing, it is admission free. And very famous. And unbelievably interesting.
Which is why we skipped the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum without a second thought, the Earth being a better scientist and designer, anyway. Also, we agreed we needed to visit London again, so.
I guess you know the chain of logic by now: 1) natural history museum 2) admission free 3) full of dinosaurs 4) full of children.
Well, they mostly did the children thing (gathering, running, exclaiming, asking, pointing …) around dinosaurs but not in the other areas (like mineralogy or paleontology), so it was OK. And we loved the dinosaurs, too. And my salad afterwards was lovely 🙂
After having spent a few lovely hours at the museum, I wanted to have a look at the Harrods, simply because it was near. It was raining a bit, but it was very hot inside the department store, which is why we took off our coats. So we carried our bags, umbrellas and coats through the crowded rooms and had no free hands and no wish to buy stuff like cookies. Not our fault – they should have reduced the heat, it’s that simple.
