I love love this museum. I came here as a child and not much has changed. Booked to take my 2 year old to the museum in Covid times. Booking was easy and free if you scroll to the bottom of the booking page you get the option to book for free. Car park is in Tring park and there is a cut through making it a hop, step and a jump. Arrived at the museum slightly early as the email tells you not to be late. Left queuing outside in the pouring rain like others all with small children. There is a covered entrance which the staff could use but they leave you out in the pouring rain. All guests who are queuing do so in a covid safe way. When it was our turn to enter the building I stepped into the entrance. I was aggressively told to “wait outside” I was already soaked so I did as I was told. Woman then told use to get inside. I had to give my name three times before we were let in. Told to vacate the museum by 1630. That’s fine I have no issue with that. The staff are so incredibly hostile and clearly don’t want people visiting. They make it a horrible experiences. If any of those kids left in the rain get a cough or a sore throat then all those families will have to isolate and gets tests. The NHM staff need to change the queuing system to keep people dry through winter. Or have tickets timed 10 mins apart. Get your queuing sorted and be more welcoming. I wouldn’t come back during covid times or the winter.

The Rothschild collection that forms this museum is incredible. Whilst not to everyone’s taste it’s a great way to experience different species through a collection decades in the making and no doubt a foundation of what we know of zoology today. Was a great way to spend a few rainy hours on a Sunday. Free to all, we made a nice donation.
