  • Another example of a freebie in London where you can't go wrong. Great for kids, lots of fun things to look at skeletons, disembodied, and for some reason a jar of moles that seems to be the most popular item I don't know why. You can spend 30 minutes you can spend 2 hours. They don't have a bathroom kind of weird but at least somebody told you which nobody told me till I got there.
  • Brilliant little gem just off Euston Road and worth seeking out. Free to roam around but if you enjoy it then go mad and leave them the fiver they ask. Full of beautifully presented, fascinating and unusual specimens from Elephant skulls to a jar of lizards. Only small and opens 1-5. Avoid the crowds and crush of the bigger attractions and get close and personal with something which may not exist anymore!!
