A History Lesson

So it had been a while since I had taken my camera out and take some pictures. I went to the Natural History Museum and I must say I did have an interesting history lesson.

The moment you walk into the museum, you are met by this beautiful artefact(or remake of artefact) of dinosaur bones….

Right across, is the father of evolutionary biology, Charles Darwin.

The architecture I must say is breath taking, from the moment I got there, to the moment I left I kept saying wow…

From what I saw, I thought the most amazing artefact was the Giant Sequoia.It’s the biggest living thing, and it is huge. Not only that but it is also embedded within the architecture.

Richard Owen  was the first director of the museum and is also famous for being the person who named dinosaurs. I did see a lot of them, unfortunately my camera’s battery had run out( I know right, if you are going to go out taking pictures at least charge the camera ) I did get some shots of the different exhibitions which they have with my iPhone. The lighting in the area though was not perfect so some of them don’t look amazing.

I kept walking in the building and I saw a mammals exhibit. Who hasn’t seen the big blue whale…here is a life size( I think) replica of it. It literally filled the entire room.

I wanted to see more, but all my devices had run out of battery. So I’ve left the other levels for other days. I did enjoy my time there and I will be visiting there again soon.
