Natural History Museum

Last wednesday mum and I went to the Natural History Museum. I had been before in the first week I was here but still managed to find things I hadn't seen last time!

Anyone who knows me knows I love animals, skulls and taxidermy. And seeing as mum loves fossils we thought it would be the perfect place to go. I had seen a lot of it last time I went but completely missed the birds area! I loved seeing all the old Victorian taxidermy. Even though it also makes me a little sad seeing the huge amount of stuffed animals collected by the Victorians, they have done amazing scientific research and the Natural History Museum really shows that.

I loved the old bird prints and how they looked at the way the feathers sit and the wings move and seeing the skulls and dinosaurs, so much inspiration there!
