The museum is beautiful its self! An amazing building with a great garden area. However, the exhibits were not that interesting. The best section was the one with the dinosaurs!

I visited the museum mid-morning on a Monday and it was quite busy ( but no need to queue) and with some school groups present. It must be 30 odd years since my last visit but for the most part it still looked very familiar,...More

DinoSnores may not be the cheapest treat to yourself, but its worth every penny if you love museums, good food, great atmosphere and all night cinema.

I'm a Member of the museum - so I'm biased! But its a bias that comes from a huge admiration for the world's finest museum of natural history.

I’ve been here so many times as a child and it really does get better with age. The artefacts are so varied and old, from parts of the planet mars to precious gems to some of the worlds most complete skeleton structures discovered of dinosaurs...More

We spent the day here, the butterfly garden was a few euro each but the museum itself is free. We had a great time!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

As the halls are well lit you do not need to use flash. The main hall has natural light so you will get great photos.
