Along with visiting the art galleries of London, I also managed to squeeze in a visit to quite a few of London’s museums. I’ll be doing the same format as my London Art Galleries post, including the Admission, Nearest Tube Station and also the areas of each museum which I enjoyed the most.
Natural History Museum
Magnificent architecture and enough exhibits to spend weeks, and months in. If anyone has been here and there weren’t queues let me know the day and time you went, as I had to do what us Brits do best…queue! There is only 80 MILLION items on display. Not only are the objects incredibly interesting in their own right, but the history surrounding their discovery is just as interesting as there are many examples of items that were discovered by Charles Darwin. As a huge fan of Sir David Attenborough’s documentaries, I loved every part about animals and the natural world.
Nearest Tube: South Kensington (Circle, District, Piccadilly).
Victoria and Albert Museum
My favourite museum out of all the museums in London. There are so many areas of interest for me, the Ancient Rome and Greece areas were particularly interesting as I studied them at university, plus the area is not too far from the main entrance. The Rotunda Chandelier is the eye-catching centrepiece of the reception area that captures your attention as you enter the main entrance. It is also one of my favourite parts of the museum as I couldn’t stop looking at it whenever I was in eye-shot of it. I visited a total of three times in three weeks, a museum with so much to offer visitors.
