Natural history museum

Another must-see in London is the Natural History Museum. There are lots of skeletons of various species of animals, including prehistoric and stuffed animals, or even life-size models of large animals such as the white whale or the Tyrannosaurus Rex. The building itself is wonderful. Admission is free and the museum is open until 6 pm.

Fantastic and impressive

A little sad for all the stuffed animals. And 'one of the best natural history museums in the world, very interesting, there are many scientific and historical collections. Like most of the museums in London are free, is very large, if you intend to visit will take away at least half a day. So if you're in London go to visit him.

Fantastico ed impressionante

Un po triste per tutti gli animali imbalsamati. E' uno dei migliori musei di scienze naturale al mondo, molto interessante, ci sono tante collezioni scientifiche e storiche. Come la maggior parte dei musei di Londra è gratuito, è molto grande, se intendete visitarlo vi porterà via minimo mezza giornata. Quindi se vi trovate a Londra andate a visitarlo.

Located on Cromwell Road in London, the Natural History Museum is one of the most impressive museums in the city. It is considered by Londoners as "Cathedral of Nature". Life here on Earth is entirely explained by traditional and interactive exhibits. It is open daily between 10h00 and 17h50, closes only between 24 and 26 December. Admission is free, except for some temporary exhibitions. In Romanesque architecture, the building has an entrance that gives access to the sublime Central Hall where the famous skeleton of Diplodocus. The entire visit this room is undoubtedly the most striking and one that automatically associate when we speak of the Natural History Museum, this was not the room where most flashes are seen firing and where children actually vibrate with emotion. Also in this fantastic room, Central Hall, you can enjoy the magnificent art exhibition that is on the ceiling, a variety of fresh plants that allude to the "four corners" of the world. At the top of the staircase is a statue of Charles Darwin and on the opposite side you will see a "slice" of a giant sequoia with about 1300 years. These trees are the largest living thing that exists in this museum and we have a perception of how big they are. This museum is divided into four zones indicated by colors: Green Zone (Zone dedicated to amazing facts about life, the planet, the environment and development) Red Zone (Zone dedicated to changing our planet, his training and his place in the universe) Blue Zone (Zone dedicated to the diversity of life on Earth, from the smallest to the largest whale invertebrates); Orange Zone (Zone dedicated to wildlife and the Darwin Center).

Situado na Cromwell Road em Londres, o Natural History Museum é um dos museus mais imponentes da cidade.
É considerado pelos Londrinos como "Catedral da Natureza".
Aqui a Vida na Terra é perfeitamente explicada através de exposições tradicionais assim como interactivas.
Encontra-se aberto todos os dias entre as 10h00 e as 17h50, fecha apenas entre o dia 24 e 26 de Dezembro. A entrada é grátis, com excepção de algumas exposições temporárias.
De arquitectura românica, o edifício conta com uma entrada sublime que dá acesso ao Central Hall onde se encontra o famoso esqueleto do Diplodoco.
De toda a visita esta é sem dúvida a sala mais marcante e aquela que automaticamente associamos quando nos falam do Natural History Museum, não fosse esta a sala onde mais flashs se vêem disparar e onde os mais pequenos realmente vibram de emoção.
Ainda nesta fantástica sala, o Central Hall, poderá apreciar a magnífica exposição de arte que se encontra no tecto, uma variedade de frescos que fazem alusão a plantas dos "quatro cantos" do mundo.
Ao cimo da escadaria encontra-se uma estátua de Charles Darwin e no lado oposto poderá observar uma "fatia" de uma sequóia gigante com cerca de 1300 anos. Estas árvores são o maior ser vivo que existe e neste museu podemos ter a percepção do quão grande elas são.
Este museu está dividido em quatro zonas assinaladas por cores:
Zona Verde (Zona dedicada a factos surpreendentes sobre a vida, o planeta, o ambiente e a evolução);
Zona Vermelha (Zona dedicada às mudanças do nosso planeta, à sua formação e ao seu lugar no universo);
Zona Azul (Zona dedicada à diversidade da vida no planeta, desde o mais pequeno invertebrado até à maior baleia);
Zona Laranja (Zona dedicada à vida selvagem e ao Centro Darwin).

The enclosed nature

The building s self and worth, huge cathedral-like ... a masterpiece of architecture british nineteenth century, with a steel structure and hide iron arches and columns richly decorated with sculptures of animals and plants . But we do not run out, but we go to enjoy a unique space that combines interactive virtual LATEST techniques with an exhibition of traditional pieces that remind us of the delicate balance between Earth we inhabit and that now more than ever is in danger over-exploitation and the idea outdated and that man is the dominant species. Asombrmonos the wonders of Mother Nature, as the 26-meter skeleton of a dinosaur, the theories that inspired Darwin, the mammals and reptiles that inhabit and populate the surface, fish its waters and the birds of the sky. Although the museum s worth a whole there are several points that we should not miss, like galley Ecology (that plays a damp forest), the artrpodos room (wonderful tarntulas), the balcony of mammals (from where you have a breathtaking view of a whale, dolphins and sperm whales full scale, the pavilion of Natural History of Great Britain, with caractersticos habitats of the country, or the galley of land with endless samples of rocks and minerals. Do not forget Bird galley with extinct some time and are difficult to see. In short, another London venue to enjoy only or in company, but that should not stop seeing.

La naturaleza encerrada

El edificio en sí mismo ya vale la pena, enorme y con aspecto de catedral...una obra maestra de la arquitectura británica del siglo XIX, con una estructura de acero y hierro que disimulan arcos y columnas ricamente decoradas con esculturas de animales y plantas.

Pero no nos quedemos fuera, sino entremos para disfrutar de un espacio único, que combina las últimas técnicas interactivas y virtuales con la exposición de piezas tradicionales que nos recuerdan el delicado equilibrio entre la Tierra que habitamos y que ahora más que nunca está en peligro por la sobre explotación y la idea ya caduca de que el hombre es la especie dominante.
Asombrémonos de las maravillas de la Madre Naturaleza, como el esqueleto de 26 metros de un dinosaurio, las teorías que inspiraron a Darwin, los mamíferos y reptiles que pueblan y poblaron la superficie terrestre, los peces de sus aguas y las aves de su cielo.

Aunque el museo en sí vale la pena en su totalidad hay varios puntos que no debemos perdernos, como la galería de la Ecología ( que reproduce un bosque húmedo), la sala de los artrópodos ( maravillosas tarántulas),el balcón de los mamíferos (desde donde se tiene una impresionante vista de una ballena, delfines y cachalotes a escala natural, el pabellón de Historia Natural de Gran Bretaña,con los hábitats característicos del país, o la galería de la tierra con infinitas muestras de piedras y minerales. No olvidemos tampoco la galería de Aves, con especies extinguidas hace tiempo y que son difíciles de ver.
En resumen, otro lugar de Londres para disfrutar sólo o en compañía, pero que no debe dejar de verse.

A little history of science: darwin vs owen

As there are many reviews that speak of what you can see in this great museum, I want to focus on another aspect. The amazing thing about this museum is that it looks like a Christian cathedral. This is because its creator and first director, zoologist Richard Owen (discoverer of dinosaurs and responsible for giving that name) was deeply religious, and although it was a fossil expert believed in the immutability of species. Owen and Darwin were contemporaries and respected each other at first. But when Darwin published his famous book "The Origin of Species", Owen was one of the first to attack this new theory and its relationship soured tremendously. Well, in the center stage of the main hall is a statue of Charles Darwin. It was moved there in 2009 to coincide with the bicentenary of his birth, and the statue of Richard Owen that for more than a century had taken his place was removed. Now, the Owen is in a more hidden place (I was looking for it and it took me to find it. Located just above the prinicipal entrance, in a hallway near the front). Sadly now Owen is little known, and though wrong about evolution, I believe that a recognition of this museum as creator and discoverer of dinosaurs deserve.

Un poco de historia de la ciencia: darwin vs owen

Como ya hay muchos comentarios en los que se habla de lo que se puede ver en este magno museo, yo quiero centrarme en otro aspecto.

Lo más sorprendente de este museo es que parece una catedral cristiana. Esto es así porque su creador y primer director, el zoólogo Richard Owen (descubridor de los dinosaurios y responsable de darles ese nombre) era profundamente religioso y, aunque era un experto en fósiles creía en la inmutabilidad de las especies.

Owen y Darwin eran coetáneos y al principio se respetaban mutuamente. Pero cuando Darwin publicó su famoso libro "El Origen de las Especies", Owen fue uno de los primeros en atacar esta nueva teoría y su relación se agrió enormemente.

Pues bien, en el centro del escenario de la sala principal hay una estatua de Charles Darwin. Fue trasladada allí en el año 2009, coincidiendo con el bicentenario de su nacimiento, y se retiró la estatua de Richard Owen que durante más de un siglo había ocupado su lugar. Ahora, la de Owen se encuentra en un lugar más escondido (yo iba buscándola y me costó encontrarla. Está justo encima de la entrada prinicipal, en un pasillo junto a la fachada).

Desgraciadamente ahora Owen es poco conocido y, aunque equivocado en cuanto a la evolución, creo que se merece un reconocimiento como creador de este museo y descubridor de los dinosaurios.

Museum of natural history

Upon entry, the Natural History Museum of London takes us to the heart of the science of life and the earth! Indeed, arriving in the great hall, we find, set in the center, the size skeleton of a dinosaur! The museum is dedicated to nature and its history: it explains how life works, how a woman can give birth to a child, how it grows, how does the hearing, vision, brain, touch etc.. And even invites us to make significant experiences to better put into practice the theory. You can also see many stuffed animals, skeletons of all kinds of species, whale giraffe through the monkey. It's amazing to have all these explanations, see spread out before his eyes like that kind ... This allows to realize how life is both complex and spectacular ... I loved this museum and I learned a lot of things. It is easily accessible by subway and old alike will love a visit ;)

Musée d'histoire naturelle

Dès l'entrée, le musée d'histoire naturelle de Londres nous plonge au cœur de la science de la vie et de la terre ! En effet, en arrivant dans l'immense hall d'entrée, on découvre, exposé au centre, le squelette grandeur nature d'un dinosaure !

Le musée est dédié à la nature et à son histoire : on nous explique comment fonctionne la vie, comment la femme peut donner naissance à un enfant, comment celui-ci grandit, comment fonctionne l’ouïe, la vue, le cerveau, le toucher etc. Et on nous invite même à faire des expériences sensibles pour mieux mettre en pratique la théorie.

On peut aussi voir de très nombreux animaux empaillés, des squelettes de toutes sortes d'espèces, de la baleine à la girafe en passant par le singe. C'est incroyable d'avoir toutes ces explications, de voir la nature étalée devant ses yeux comme ça... Cela permet de réaliser à quel point la vie est à la fois complexe et spectaculaire...

J'ai adoré ce musée et j'y ai appris des tas de choses. Il est accessible facilement par le métro et les grands comme les petits vont adorer la visite ;)

Where to admire in london dinosaurs and more!

The National History Museum, one of the great museums of London. We enter from the main entrance to the museum, in whose atrium gives us welcome the reconstruction of the skeleton of a Diplodocus. The museum is divided into four main areas, impossible to see it all in half a day, so we decided to visit the area devoted primarily to disonauri, for whose visit must follow a set course! Beautiful, the tour ends with a replica of a Tyrannosaurus Rex that motorized looks really real! We decided then to head to the area dedicated to volcanoes, earthquakes and minerals, which is accessed by going through a fireball. After which we move from the section dedicated to stuffed animals and insects! Monopolize the part decicata 16 ways to kill a spider for her pedra, really curious! Our tour ends with a passage to the shop and we fall in love with a toy made in the shape of triceratops really nice! We could not resist, and we carry it with us in Italy! Highly recommended!

Dove ammirare a londra i dinosauri e non solo!

Il National History Museum è uno dei grandi musei di Londra.
Noi entriamo al museo dall'ingresso principale, nel cui atrio ci dà il benvenuto la ricostruzione dello scheletro di un Diplodocus.
Il Museo è diviso in 4 macro aree, è impossibile vederlo tutto in mezza giornata, quindi decidiamo di visitare in primis la zona dedicata ai disonauri, per la cui visita occorre seguire un percorso obbligato! Bellissima, la visita termina con una riproduzione motorizzata di un tirannosauro Rex che sembra davvero reale! Decidiamo poi di dirigersi verso la zona dedicata ai vulcani, terremoti e ai minerali, da cui si accede passando attraverso una sfera infuocata.
Dopodichè passiamo dalla sezione dedicata agli animali impagliati e agli insetti! Monopolizziamo la parte decicata a 16 modi di un ragno per uccidere la sua pedra, veramente curiosa!
La nostra visita termina con un passaggio allo shop e ci innamoriamo di un peluche fatto a forma di triceratopo davvero simpatico! Impossibile resistergli, e lo portiamo con noi in Italia!
Consigliatissimo!

It is one of three major museums installed along Exhibition Road in Kensington, the other two being the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. It was built between 1873 and 1880, he was inspired by Rhenish Romanesque churches. It hosts about 70 million specimens, from the findings of the colonial empire: it is thus particularly Collections collected by the explorer James Cook and naturalist Charles Darwin. Having also visited the Washington DC, I found it less complete, especially at explanations, but more accessible to the general public, including through the experiences that we can see (including the reconstruction of the earthquake in Kobe in a store). Note: it is in this museum that runs part of the clip of the song "Hey boy hey girl" the chemical brothers. Tips: to get in, I advise you to take the side entrance and not the main one, you wait less.

Il s'agit de l'un des trois grands musées installés le long de Exhibition Road, dans le quartier de Kensington,les deux autres étant le Science Museum et le Victoria and Albert Museum.
Il fut bâti entre 1873 et 1880 ; il s'inspire des églises romanes rhénanes.

Il accueille environ 70 millions de spécimens, issus des trouvailles de l'empire colonial : on trouve ainsi notamment les collections ramassées par l'explorateur James Cook et le naturaliste Charles Darwin.

Ayant également visité celui de Washington D.C, j'ai trouvé celui-ci moins complet, notamment au niveau des explications, mais plus accessible pour le grand public, notamment grâce aux expériences que l'on peut voir (notamment la reconstitution du séisme de Kobe dans un magasin).

A noter : c'est dans ce musée que se déroule une partie du clip de la chanson "Hey boy hey girl" des chemical brothers.

Bon plan : pour y entrer, je vous conseille de prendre l'entrée sur le côté et non la principale, vous attendrez moins.

Charming at any age

The Natural History Museum is not a trivial children's museum is already evident at a glance: the structure is breathtaking, the kind that seem to come from a movie, and in a sense is not so! E 'was chosen as the location for the famous movie Night at the Museum'' a'' and many will remember the huge reconstruction of dinosaur who wields the central hall. The rooms are divided by areas and consequently type of animals, each of them are interactive games or special activities. Can be of great interest to investigate the nature but also just a nice walk through the halls stimulating. Here, too, the entrance is free, as in most British museums, should still leave a tip in the spaces provided at the entrance to ensure that structures of this kind may be the heritage of all long.

Affascinante ad ogni età

Che il Natural History Museum non sia un banale museo per bambini è palese già a colpo d'occhio: la struttura è mozzafiato, di quelle che sembrano uscite da un film, e in un certo senso è così! E' stato scelto come location per il celebre film ''una notte al museo'' e in molti si ricorderanno l'enorme ricostruzione di scheletro di dinosauro che padroneggia la hall centrale. Le sale si dividono per ambienti e conseguentemente tipologia di animali; ad ognuna di esse sono presenti giochi interattivi o particolari attività. Può essere di grande interesse per approfondire la natura ma anche solo una bella passeggiata stimolante tra le sale. Anche qui l'ingresso è gratuito, come in gran parte dei musei inglesi, consigliabile comunque lasciare una mancia negli appositi spazi all'entrata per far si che strutture del genere possano restare patrimonio di tutti a lungo.

A beautiful museum for young and old

The Natural History Museum in London is located in the famous Kensington dotted with many interesting museums. The most nearby metro easily to get to this museum Gloucester Road. The Natural History Museum in London is well worth a visit and an exhibition space suitable for both large and small. All areas are very interesting and most of them are also interactive, so as to enable the smaller to be able to interact with the installations. It is a very large museum and in which to spend at least a whole morning or afternoon to visit the most of all its parts. Surely the most interesting are those dedicated to the dinosaurs of prehistory and the area dedicated to the simulation of earthquakes. Keep in mind that at the Natural History Museum you can get for free.

Un bellissimo museo per grandi e piccini

Il Museo di Storia Naturale di Londra si trova nel famoso quartiere di Kensigton costellato di tantissimi musei interessanti. La metro più vicina per poter arrivare facilmente a questo museo è Gloucester Road.

Il Natural History Museum di Londra merita davvero di essere visitato ed è uno spazio espositivo adatto sia a grandi che a piccoli.

Tutte le aree sono molto interessanti e la maggior parte di esse sono anche interattive, così da permettere ai più piccoli di poter interagire con delle installazioni.
Si tratta di un museo molto grande e nel quale trascorrere almeno tutta una mattinata o un pomeriggio per poter visitare al meglio tutte le sue parti.

Sicuramente le più interessanti sono quelle dedicate ai dinosauri della preistoria e l'area dedicata alla simulazione dei terremoti.

Da tenere a mente che al Natural History Museum si può entrare gratis.

The concentrata history museum

A must-see for lovers of natural history. It is one of the three most important museums of Exhibition Road in Kensington, and has an extensive collection of objects and specimens divided into different categories such as plants, fossils and skeletons. Especially interesting is the mastodonde we found the entrance to the Museum, from Chile, and other dinosaur skeletons and stuffed animals.

Beautiful building, full of culture. You can wander through the world of dinosaurs, delve into the human body, see hundreds of species diseacadas, a commemorative exhibition ... A place to spend all day and stay wanting more. Open from 10.00 am and always overrun with people, school field trips. I was in February and I really surprised at how huge that is the building and the culture which houses inerior ... I recommend it to everyone and especially to those lovers of science and nature. Also very suitable for children.

Precioso edificio, lleno de cultura. Puedes pasear por el mundo de los dinosaurios, adentrarte en el cuerpo humano, ver cientos de especies diseacadas, alguna exposicion conmemorativa... Un lugar para pasar todo el día y quedarte con ganas de mas. Abierto desde las 10.00 de la mañana y siempre invadido de gente, colegios en excursiones. Estuve el pasado febrero y la verdad que me sorprendio mucho lo gigantesco que es el edificio y la de cultura que alberga en su inerior...
Se lo recomiendo a todo el mundo y en especial a aquellos amantes de la ciencia y la naturaleza.

Both the outside and inside, this museum is great! A magnificent ancient architecture, Victorian kind I think. And a museum of astonishing size. You can see dinosaur skeletons, stones of all kinds, a giant tree trunk, animals of all species in actual size, a special exhibition on Darwin. Everything is free. It takes a good day to be able to see everything and be patient to queue to see the dinosaurs. But this museum worth.

Aussi bien de l'extérieur que de l'intérieur, ce musée est grandiose! Une magnifique architecture ancienne, de type Victorien je pense. Et un musée d'une taille étonnante. On peut y voir des squelettes de dinosaures, des pierres de toutes sortes, un tronc d'arbre géant, des animaux de toutes espèces en taille réelle, une exposition sur Darwin extraordinaire. Le tout est gratuit. Il faut compter une bonne journée pour pouvoir tout visiter et être patient pour faire la queue pour aller voir les dinosaures. Mais ce musée en vaut vraiment le coup.
