Natural History Museum (London)
Is your child obsessed with watching Jurassic Park on repeat? Do they have a fascination with the sea? If they are, then the Natural History Museum is the place to be. Let them be amazed by the T-Rex that stands before them. Or the skeleton of the blue whale that greets them on arrival.
And for the adults, if you’re not amazed by the T-Rex or blue whale, you will be by the price. With the Natural History Museum, it’s free entry to all.
The iconic museum is located in South Kensington, just a short 10-minute cab ride from Buckingham Palace if you wish to show your children where the King lives too.
