This past week I visited London and spent a day at the Natural History Museum. This is a stunningly beautiful building, steeped in history. The display of marine reptiles is absolutely breathtaking...you walk into a room that must be 30 or 40 feet high (can't find a reference to the size) and is loaded, floor to ceiling with framed displays of ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs and mosasaurs. Oddly, there's also a Megatherium in the corner. With all due respect to my British followers though, I have to say that I found the dinosaur hall a disappointment. Most of the skeletons are displayed on "floating" platforms way above your head and in extremely dim lighting. The majority of the display is "interactive" displays. Maybe I'm just too old school.
I'll be loading the images over the next couple days. Lnhm2 by PaleoGuy

I miss the BMNH - wish you could have seen it when there were cabinets and cabinets and cabinets full of fossils.
