Natural History Museum

“Dippy the Dinosaur” and “Hope the Blue Whale”

It was Dippy, the dinosaur skeleton cast of Diplodocus on display in Hintze Hall when I made a first visit to the Natural History Museum, London in 2014. At that time I was at the final stage of my PhD seeking for curatorial experience with the Coleopterists at NHM. Never once did I imagine that one day I will be back to the same place. Four years have passed since my last visit and here I am again, at the NHM – this time, a stunning 25.2 metres, Hope the Blue Whale is on display in Hintze Hall!
