Not my first visit and won't be my last!
I was very keen to see the blue whale in the foyer, but did feel it needed to be lower to fully appreciate it. I get that it has a curve in it but it is a bit of a dangler and doesn't have anywhere near the same impact as the diplodocus.
They have managed the CoVid stuff well and it's good to see so much still open. I did miss seeing the glyptodon as that one is an old friend!
Generally it was all very good - I liked the new (for me) route into the geology section but was pleased to see that the old rock room is still there.
Overall it was another enjoyable visit.
Two displays were there and I do like that the museum is free with paid for exhibitions. I hadn't realised the photographic one was still on as I would have booked that - although it's not cheap these days. Even more expensive was the Harry Potter themed display of Fantastic Beasts, it was extortionate. I know they use these to raise funds but I'd much rather they charged a little for non-UK residents at the door and then made the special displays cheaper.
