Earlier this year we visited the Natural History Museum London. Aside from the incredible specimens of history it holds within its doors (over 80 million items!), the building itself is a phenomenal structure and it’s that I want to share with you this week.
We wandered for a couple of hours in and out of zones and rooms, the kids bypassing anything which did not interest them. To be honest, dead things in glass cases doesn’t particularly excite me either yet I LOVED the experience because I was simply in awe of what an incredibly beautiful building it is. The angles, masonry craft and varying uses of stone. It is quite something.
As we ascended to the upper levels, the conversational sounds of people below us, rose as almost whispers. It was quite ‘cathedral like’, almost spiritual and there was a feeling of being removed from the bustling hubbub of the museum.
If you are in London this Summer a visit is highly recommend. Entry is free, it’s something to do with the children and if, at all, you enjoy buildings and structure… you’re going to like it for reasons other than the ancient life it holds within.
