With more than 70 million specimens, the Natural History Museum's collections cover almost all groups of animals, plants, minerals and fossils ranging from cells on slides to whole animals preserved in alcohol. The scope of the specimens is simply vast including the ill-fated dodo, dazzling diamonds and a full-size blue whale model. "The Museum Souvenir Guide" explores the essence of each of the exhibition areas and weaves this with fun facts, stories of scientific research, discoveries and events that relate to the Museum. It features those key exhibits that every visitor wants to remember: Diplodocus, the blue whale, the dodo, the hummingbird case, the giant sloth and the giant squid. Both recycled and recyclable, the guide reveals the Museum's dual role as major visitor attraction and world leader in scientific research. Sumptuously illustrated, this is an invaluable souvenir to remind visitors of their visit.
