London Museums

London is full of amazing Museums and most of them are free of charge!

I often go to the Museums, I like seeing the exhibitions, visiting the Museum shops, packed with all sort of wonderful objects. I look at the groups of students visiting the Museum with their teachers… and I always find myself wishing that you could view all of these wonders. Today I’ve just space for two museums, but if you are interested I could write more in the future. I send you some websites just in case you would have a virtual tour!

Natural History Museum Entry is free!

The Museum opened in 1881 and its architecture is impressive…

Many films have been filmed here, e.g.  Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, One of our dinosaurs is missing

Here you are some of its main highlights:

In the Central Court you can meet a terrifying Tyrannosaurus Rex, unearth Baryonyx bones and inspect the Triceratops skeleton in the world-renowned Dinosaurs gallery. You can distinguish the facts from the myths about why dinosaurs died out,  explore 160 million years of the dinosaur era, find out what the dinosaurs looked like, what they ate, how they evolved, discover hundreds of specimen displays, including four moving animatronic dinosaurs.

The center piece of the mammals’ gallery is the awesome life-size model of a blue whale suspended from the ceiling. It’s the largest creature that has ever lived, bigger even than the dinosaurs, and still alive today!

In addition, if you come in winter you will find the fantastic ice rink  placed outside.

The British Museum Entry is free!

The British Museum was founded in 1753 (!!!), the first national public museum in the world. From the beginning it granted free admission to “all studious and curious people”. The visitor’s number has grown from around 5.000 a year in the eighteen century to nearly 6 million today.

The free resources for school visits are just amazing!

Visiting the Egyptian mummies is a must: The ancient Egyptians preserved not only the bodies of dead people, but also many different animals. These bodies are called ‘mummies’ and you can see lots of them here.

If you want know everything about wonders in the ancient world (Mesopotamia, Egypt, Ancient Greece and Rome, Medieval Europe…) this is the place you should visit!

My question is: Which of the museums you’ve visited have you liked the more?


Highlights: The most important things

Unearth: To dig out of the earth (desenterrar)

World-renowned: Famous all over the world.

Ice-rink: area where people can ice skate or play winter sports.
