    Building is magnificent. The dinosaurs exhibition is amazing. I liked the red section about earth, it is very comprehensive. The Kobe earthquake simulation is impressive. A great museum for all ages.

    Free entrance to the museum. Dinosaurs section are the best. One of the best museum in London. There's a lot of things to discover here and spend at least 1-2 hours

    What a fabo museum, #Free and well worth the visit. FYI the dinosaur exhibition is super packed no working air con, so will get very stuffy and warm in busy parts. £50 to feed a family of 4 @ Cafe.

    Really cool museum, worth visiting. If you want to see everything it will take you several hours. Free Wi-Fi everywhere. Donation recommended. Lots of things to learn in here!

    One of the most beautiful museum building in the world. It's free so expect a long queue for entering and another even longer one for the dino... Be there at 10!

    One of the best museums for all things life and earth. Use the other entrance on Exhibition Road to avoid the long lines into this beautiful building. Bring extra fun tasks for the children to do!

    Had enough of queues to see dead stuff? Check out the wildlife garden at the back of the Darwin Center. Ponds, hedges, bee-trees, lillies; it beautiful. Also a good place to loose 3 year olds!

    Definitely a must visit museum (and it's free)! Soak in the immensely huge and beautiful atrium. Don't forget to head to the bridge on the top floor if you want cool photos.

    On the last Friday of every month the museum stays open late with wine available in one of the galleries until 10:30. You also can eat in the delicious-smelling restaurant on the ground floor.

    The museum is great, but don't miss the Hogwarts like architecture of the building with all it's goblins and details.

    Amazing structure housing some amazing creatures. Iconic whale and dinosaur bones are definitely worth catching but the rest of the place mustn't be ignored. Late night are the best so check schedule

    Get there super early particularly for the dinosaurs as it gets incredibly busy or go on a sunny day ... don't miss the butterflies in the marquee at the front Read more

    Get there early as it gets very busy on weekends & school hols. But don't be put off by the queues to see the dinosaur exhibits. We were told a 20min wait but were in in no more than 10 min

    Kids will definitely love the dinosaurs exhibits. To avoid the queues, use the 'secret' entrance on Exhibition Road. Do pop over to the Science Museum and V&A Museum which are just round the corner.

    Amazing place for the people of all ages. Admission free. A lot of rooms with interactive boards and models of dinosaurs and animals. Big room with minerals. A journey to the "Beginning of Earth".

    An excellent museum, and free (donation recommended) to boot. Saw the butterflies and the coral reef display, both limited time engagements. Dinosaurs and sea mammals were a hit with the kids as well.
  • Delfin English Schools
    Come down for dinosaurs and wildlife exhibitions in a stunning Hogwarts-like Victorian building. Don't miss the summer butterflies exhibition or join the lates for a more adult- friendly evening.

    Obviously the dinosaurs and mammals exhibitions are fantastic; but do not miss the minerals, The Vault and the Sequoia on the second and third floors of Green area. Absolutely amazing.

    Beautiful building, interesting exhibits, but very outdated. Some exhibits showed present-day as 1990 and still has Pluto as a planet. Worth going because of the amazing architecture and surroundings.

    I think, this is the best museum on London. It's free and if you want you can pay for all the atractions. You can see the dinossaurs without wait is At after 17:00.

    You will never forget the sight of the dinosaur skeleton at the entrance. Don't forget to admire the building's interior as it's very atmospheric. Ice skate ring just in front in winter!

    Dinosaur section is popular. Go online to book a slot for it. No need to queue to get to this area. Just go to the entrance to the section, show the booking, and you're in. Saves you standing in line.

    This museum is really really big that it takes hours to see all the things. The museum includes almost everything. Geography, biology, animals... Also it's free! And don't use the main entrance.

    It's free, there are lots of dinosaurs, and it's huge! Must visit for families with kids. There's usually ice skating outside the grounds during winter.

    It's just great, go see the big Blue Whale. But it brings in massive crowds for the dinosaurs on weekends and holidays, try next doors V&A or Science Museum, both are outstanding experiences.

    Visit the Darwin Centre there's plenty of interactive exhibits and very interesting. Pick up your Nature+ card to save interesting exhibits and take home to find out more information on the net.

    Free admission, good place for children and family. I think dinosaur is the main attraction but I think there's more than that. Don't forget to visit the Cocoon at the Orange Zone.

    Amazing museum - wonderful space and it's all free! Dinosaur and marine exhibits are amazing but so are the birds, planets and earth exhibits! Cafes are expensive though

    SALGADO: Avoid v long ticket queue by using the butterfly show ticket kiosk on the green outside museum & then go straight in past everyone. A museum guard kindly told me this & saved me over 30mins.

    Visit on a weekday afternoon to reduce the risk of encountering large crowds, especially school parties. Consider buying a guide and being selective about what you view – there is so much to see!

    Currently the only way to get a peek behind the scenes is to request (free) tickets for the Spirit Building tour from an information desk. The tour includes the GIANT SQUID + many other things in jars

    If you're thinking about attending a paid-for exhibition, definitely buy a ticket online in advance - it allows you to skip the perennially long entrance queues that snake along Cromwell Road
