99. Wander around the Natural History Museum of London

Ranked #99 in our countdown of ‘100 Ultimate Travel Experiences of a Lifetime’.

The design of this extraordinary building is a strong competitor to the collection of many treasures contained within its walls.

London’s Natural History Museum, with its classic Romanesque architecture, has been described as a work of art in its own right, while others have likened the grand arches and spirited towers to a Harry Potter movie set.

Beyond the impact of the building, the museum contains one of the world’s best collections devoted to the sciences of zoology, botany and minerals, with its famous gallery of dinosaur skeletons.

A far more interactive experience is in the Volcanoes and Earthquakes gallery, complete with an earthquake simulator. Hands down, this is the best place to get shaken up in the British capital.

 

Dinosaurs, crystals, tree rings. It’s an Enid Blyton book for adults.
