As I write this, in June 2020, museums and places where people gather are closed in the UK. There’s nothing good about this – apart from the obvious one of preventing the spread of the coronavirus – but although it’s not possible for us to visit, we can at least ‘go’ there.
The video below shows you just a few of the exhibits that visitors to the museum enjoy.
The museum has – unbelievably – over 80 million items on exhibit. Some of these have historic importance too, such as items collected by Charles Darwin. What the public doesn’t see is that the museum is a research centre, a teaching resource, library and it states that its mission is ‘to create advocates for the planet’.
You’ll learn much more at their website and if you’re currently homeschooling your kids, or even if you’re just looking for things for them to do, then the website has a ‘try at home’ section with some great ideas.
