Natural History Museum Visit (Saturday 15th February)

Note 1) Please note we are meeting at South Kensington Tube Station (by the Pelham Street Exit). We are not meeting at the actual museum because it can be extremely crowded. Ensure you read the following directions as the station exits are not numbered or clearly marked. If arriving via the underground, walk straight through the tube station barriers and then directly up the steps in front. Then turn left towards the exit that leads to Pelham Street. We will meet just outside this exit and be holding a meetup sign. Also ensure you take the following mobile number in the unlikely event you get lost -[masked].

Join us for a Saturday afternoon visit to the Natural History Museum. This world-famous museum is home to one of the largest natural history collections in the world, from microscopic slides to mammoth dinosaur skeletons. The building itself is exceptionally impressive with a cathedral like structure, frescoes and sculptures (it is often called 'The Cathedral of Nature'). The Natural History Museum contains an amazing total of 70 million objects. Entry to the museum is free.

The museum is divided into three main coloured zones. The Green zone concentrates on facts about life, the planet, environment and evolution. The Red Zone explores our ever changing planet, how it was shaped and its place within the universe. The Blue Zone concentrates on the diversity of life on our planet from blue whales to the smallest invertebrates.

We will meet at 1:30 pm outside South Kensington Tube Station (directly outside the Pelham Street Exit). After a 15 minute wait we will walk the 5-10 minutes to the actual museum. My mobile will be switched on at the meetup point and switched off when we enter the actual museum.

Please note that this is a general visit to the permanent exhibitions, rather than a verbal guided tour.  Once inside, members can either stay with our group or explore the gallery by themselves.

After our visit, we will meet outside the main entrance of the actual museum at 3:15 pm. Then members have the option of joining us at a nearby local bar/pub for drinks and a chat. 

Finally, if you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact us by email through this website. Just click on my photo (Martyn) and choose the option to send an email.

Kind regards
Martyn and terry

    Hi sorry I'm running quite late so don't think I will make it for 1.30. Please go ahead without me and I'll try and catch you in there. If I don't find you I'm sure there will be plenty to keep me occupied there.

    I can no longer make this meet up due to bad cash flow problem (big vet bill!). I hope everyone has a lovely time, and I hope to see everyone soon! In the meantime, if you'd like to get to know me better feel free to add me on facebook (RebeccaTinaWilde), as I seriously need to make some new friends. :)

    Hi Everyone, I have received many emails/queries from those on the waiting list. We appreciate your patience but do ask everyone to kindly observe the waiting list as we are at capacity for this event. If you have been moved from the waiting list due to others dropping out you will automatically receive an email from Meetup notifying you of this. You can find out your position on the waiting list by scrolling down the page on the right hand side to the 'waiting list' and checking your position from first to last (top to bottom). We do also ask those who can no longer attend to immediately change your RSVP to 'no' as otherwise it's so unfair to others. We only permit 2 no-shows on this meetup group. Kind Regards, Martyn
