A dino-lover's heavenFlag review
If you have a dinosaur-obsessed child like I do, this is the place to go. Dinosaur bones, eggs, animatronic dinosaur gifts, dinosaur games ... well, you get the idea. There's also a great history of evolution, the giant blue whale (don't miss it), and any kid will be impressed with a detour into The Vault, where the museum houses gems, crystals, meteorites and metals of all colors, shapes and sizes, including the Koh-i-Noor diamond and a rare Martian meteorite.
Tips for Families
Some of the animatronic dinosaurs in the exhibits might scare littler ones. Before you go, make sure to check out the "Parents' Survival Guide" online and plan your trip. (http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit-us/parents-survival-guide/index.html) Bring a picnic but don't eat in the exhibit areas.
