Massive cultural institution with room after room of ancient history. There is so much to see here that it can take a few hours to go round, so allow time. What we like now is that you can handle precious artifacts at various locations with the help of handlers (trained staff who are experts in the artifacts). It is a real chance to lay your hands on ancient history. Literally!
At the end of our trip to London last week, we stumbled across the Festival of Britain 1951 Exhibition held at the South Bank Centre near Waterloo Station.
An excellent exhibition showing what it must have been like to go to this exhibition back in '51. Here are some photos.
The Science museum in London is a must for any visitor to the capital. There is something for everyone, with huge exhibition halls dedicated to the history and development of science. Each part of the museum is clearly laid out with halls dedicated to aviation, computing, agriculture, space and much more. There are plenty of interactive exhibitions for the kids to enjoy themselves too. We loved looking at the huge main frame computers of the 1960s and seeing the Sinclair pocket calculator from the 1970s. An absolute classic!

Not long ago we came across an Austin Healey 3000 Mark III parked in the corner of a dusty, old car park. The car itself, covered in a layer of dust and leaves, looked rather lonely and forgotten. Time for its rebirth - here are some photos taken of this classic British sports car from the 1960s. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austin-Healey for more information about Austin Healey.

There are a few James Bond exhibitions around the world every year.
We managed to capture the Secret World of Spies and James Bond exhibition held in the Palace of Culture, Warsaw. With exclusive colour photographs of rare and unique exhibits, it is the only place on the web to see this fantastic display of spyware.
