Crazy about dinosaurs? If you are looking for something fun to do with your dino-mad kids, look no further! Get ready to delve into the Natural History Museum, London, from home with a virtual self-guided tour. A fantastic way to entertain – and educate – the whole family!

Available through the brilliant Google Arts & Culture, this virtual tour is ideal for families who want to explore the natural world in detail. Check out the museum’s 80 million specimens – kids will love examining the detail of the brush-footed butterflies or encountering a prehistorical marine reptile in virtual reality. Experience the amazing exhibits without the crowds – currently there are 14 awesome digital exhibitions to enjoy, including Dinosaur Discoveries: Windows on a Prehistoric World, Butterflies and Moths: Life Written on Wings and Unearthed: Life Recorded in Fossils. Natural History Museum exhibitions are simply the best!

Get lost in the corridors and gallery spaces in 360 degrees with the Google Street View team. Explore the Hintze Hall and meet the spectacular NHM whale, which is one of the largest animals ever to have lived! The blue whale is suspended in the centre of the museum, surrounded by the museum’s other specimens. Enter Earth Hall and see the Stegosaurus skeleton, which is three metres tall and six metres long. Plus, the UK's most famous (and most loved) dinosaur, Dippy the diplodocus, is back on display in the entrance hall online.
