We took Sophie to one of our fond childhood memories of the wonderful Natural History Museum, a fantastic place with lots of natural curiosities to see and best of all the museum is interactive just perfect for a small inquiring mind. The queue was long as the museum is free and we waited 30 mins to get in but we were entertained by looking at the grand architecture of the building and looking at all the gargoyles that were guarding the building.
For little active fingers there were plenty of buttons and things to create and see which Sophie had a lot of fun interacting with. There were even plenty of bugs and creepy crawlies and a close escape from a giant scorpion.
After a fab lunch we were refueled to take on the mammals and we got to see a full size Blue whale as well as many other mammals such as horses, tigers and deer.
There really was so much to see and we didn't get to see the whole museum but what we did astounded Sophie and left enough for another visit and adventure another day.
