Dinosaurs in 21st Century
If you doubt whether you can see a dinosaur these days, I can assure you by telling you about the Natural History Museum in London.
This impressive museum is one of the biggest in the world. The idea of its foundation was sir Hans Sloane’s, who allowed his significant collection to be put in a museum by the Government. Initially, the collections of dried flowers and skeletons of animals and humans were put in a building, which was later set on fire. Afterwards, a big part of the collection was said never to have been recovered. The work around the new building was completed in 1880 and the new museum was opened in 1881.
Despite the age of the institution, many collections have a great historical as well as scientific value. The museum is divided into four differently coloured zones, in which you can see everything – information about our planets, dried flowers, different types of rocks and fossils, models and skeletons of all animals and birds from all over the world, and everything about the human body. However, the museum’s most impressive area, which it is most famous for, is the one with the skeletons and models of all dinosaurs scientists know.
Personally, I find the Natural History Museum the most fascinating museum in the world. I could definitely recommend visiting it since it is not only a place where you can go sightseeing, but it is also one of the most famous centres of research in the world.
