  • Exhibits cover every part of the natural world 
  • Cares for 80 million specimens spanning billions of years
  • Welcomes more than five million visitors annually 
With its glowing Victorian architecture, the Natural History Museum London is a sight in and of itself. But so much more awaits inside this beautiful building that’s filled with rich, sprawling exhibits covering every part of the natural world. A zone devoted to the dinosaurs will get your inner archaeologist all riled up, while the Darwin Centre will give you an up-close view of more than 28 million species of insects. The museum in its entirety cares for a staggering 80 million specimens spanning billions of years. 

It’s one of three major museums along Exhibition Road in London’s South Kensington neighborhood—the others being the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum.
