Picture Perfect: Exploring our Natural World at British History Museum

IRONICALLY, I visited London in several occasions but I did not know that this museum existed. With my friend’s persuasion and with the help of Trivago’s attractions list, I visited the place and it took me 3 hours to really enjoy the visually stunning and thought-provoking collections of hundreds of natural history specimens, including images, interactive displays, and visual works.

The Natural History Museum is free to the public but there are on-going exhibitions inside that require tickets for access. The museum is divided into 4 zones: Orange Zone, Blue Zone, Green Zone and Red Zone. Some of the interesting and must-see galleries include the following: (Orange Zone) – dont miss to visit the Darwin’s Centre – Cocoon; (Blue Zone) – Dinosaurs; (Green Zone) – Giant Sequoia, Minerals, and The Vault; and (Red Zone) – Earth Treasury and the Power Within.

IN PARTICULAR, the Red Zone’ Earth’s Treasury contains hundreds of valuable gemstones and minerals, and the Power Within is showcasing the actual footage of BBC News during the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines in 1991. The Vault in the Green Zone is keeping some of the most beautiful and stunning precious stones and some of them are sparkling in the dark.
