Reasons for trip

We have just visited the Natural History Museum in London. We decided to try some of the free visitor attractions that are held in this museum. One of them is the Attenborough studio, where we enjoyed an informative talk given by a scientist. There is a programme of varied talks the one we heard was about The Incredible Cuckoo. The scientist showed film clips, talked about their work, and took questions from the audience.

We also participated in a free interactive film show on the sub ject of evolution. Each person has a small computer that allows them to participate in questions, and view dinosaurs and other creatures appear in the studio. The presenter of the film is David Attenborough, and the presentation really does make you think about how far back our origins go. The presentation is entitled Who do you think you really are?

Another feature in the museum that we found helpful was a means of saving information so you can read it later at your leisure. There are free credit card sized cards, that you can insert into a slot. The machine will then put the information you want saved onto the card so you can read it at home at leisure on your computer . The subjects vary from Dodo's to the Reeves art collection. A most helpful innovation we thought.

We would certainly visit the museum again to listen to more talks or watch more informative films.
