The Natural History Museum is #18 in our London Bucket List

Put your senses to the test in this illuminating exhibition at the Natural History Museum.

You'll come face-to-face with the creepy creatures that thrive at night, living in pitch-black caves and at the bottom of the deep dark ocean.

You'll enter their nocturnal worlds and discover how they find their way around, hunt for food, mate and evade predators. You'll walk through the shadows of a bat cave and smell their distinctive aromas, see a beautiful bioluminescent display as it appears underwater, and listen to a symphony of nocturnal noises and meet the creatures who made them.
