Dinos or Foetus?

The Natural History Museum in London is expecting long queues over the Easter school holidays for its Dinosaur Gallery, from 29 March to 14 April, and is offering free advance tickets online (CLICK). If you can persuade your cherubs that Tyrannosaurus rex - even a giant, roaring animatronic model - isn't all it's cracked up to be, you could steer them into the Human Biology section. Here you will find a gigantic womb, which is a true work of modern art. I visited this exhibit many moons ago. You enter the womb with the sound of a human heartbeat thumping in your ears and gaze up at the awe-inspiring Giant Model of a Human Foetus (above). It seems like an alien god from a science fiction film. They're taking over the World!
