The imposing, Romanesque interior of The Central Hall at London's Natural History Museum, the glass and iron ceiling structure was purposely left exposed by architect Alfred Waterhouse to display the beauty of the building materials.

About the Natural History Museum:
The Natural History Museum is one of the big three museums in South Kensington, London. It is a wonderful Victorian building housing the weird and wonderful of the natural world. The Natural History Museum is world famous for its dinosaur skeletons.
Sadly, the museum is a victim of its own success and regularly has very long queues of people waiting outside to enter. This makes it near impossible to visit at the weekend and during UK school holidays, unless you are very patient. There is a side entrance which has shorter queues but weekdays are the best time to visit.
