  • Dinosaur Isle (Sandown, Isle of Wight)

    Dinosaur Isle is a purpose-built museum that has been constructed in the shape of a gigantic pterodactyl. Inside the museum are many interactive exhibits and over 1,000 fossils. Things to particularly look out for include a reconstruction of a Megalosaurus skeleton (Megalosaurus was the first dinosaur to be scientifically described), a reconstruction of Polacanthus foxii (an armored dinosaur related to Ankylosaurus).

  • Natural History Museum (London)

    The Natural History Museum is one of three large museums in the South Kensington area of London (the others being the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum). The Natural History Museum was originally founded in the mid-19th century, as part of the British Museum, largely due to the work of Sir Richard Owen. Today the museum is home to many wonderful public exhibits, more than 70 million specimens (including some collected by Charles Darwin), and is an important center of scientific research.
