Review by Isabel Maher, age 6
I feel quite amazed at how huge the Natural History Museum is. It’s so busy and very noisy inside with all its visitors. The minute you get in the door, there is a huge brown skeleton of a diplodocus dinosaur.
The name is on a little tag and I know the name because I have been to the museum so many times. You can look at it and walk around it.
I like the Blue Zone gallery. You have to go to the big dinosaur department to see the rest of the dinosaurs. You walk along a metal bridge to see them all. Some of them are hanging up from the ceiling, some of them are on stands, and some are robots that move.
At the end of the dinosaur room, there is a huge T Rex. It is a very realistic robot. When I was little I used to be quite scared of it, but now I quite like it.
When you have seen all of the dinosaurs, keep walking and you will end up in the mammal room. In there you will find lots of different mammals. Some are models and some used to be real but are now stuffed. The first thing you will see is a gigantic blue whale. There are also lots of other smaller sea animals around it like dolphins.
The final thing to see is the shop. It sells rocks in different shapes and sizes. If you are in London you have to visit this museum. It’s amazing.
