Looking down on dinosaurs
We love a trip to Oxford University’s Museum of Natural History in our family. Practically every month we shlep on down there for a bit of dinosaur hunting, crystal gazing and shrunken head staring (if you’ve never seen the astonishing Pitt Rivers collection you have missed a rare anthropological treat) but most of the time, we pretty much have the echoing halls to ourselves.
However, today the Easter holidays were in full swing and the place was full of children running with scissors midway through brilliant craft activities and hunting for strategically-placed eggs in the museum’s beautiful display cases.
We sought some solace in the newly-opened Birds gallery on the upper floor and watched the madness from above. If you have never been, GO! It’s ace.
