If you're one of those people who enjoys getting up at the crack of dawn to do a bit of yoga then here's something you might enjoy: a yoga class at the Natural History Museum.
The museum will be putting on some earl-morning classes before it opens up for the day, so you'll get to do all of your painful-looking moves under the giant skeleton of a Blue Whale that is hanging from the ceiling of the Hintz Hall.

After the class is over you'll also be able to enjoy exclusive access to an exhibition or one of their galleries before the museum opens to the public.
