First off, going to the Natural History Museum on a bank holiday is not a life choice I’ll be repeating. It is one of my favourite London museums, but the queues on the bank holiday in August were atrocious. However, to their credit the staff did deal with the crowds very efficiently and as this was my only opportunity to see the mammoth exhibit before it ended, I decided to stick it out.
It had a nice range of mammoth skeletons, including Lyuba, the world’s most complete baby mammoth (which you weren’t allowed to photograph) but I did feel at £10 it was a little pricey for what you got and didn’t inspire me to discover more.
You can find a few more photos of the exhibition, and the rest of the museum in general, here.
