Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story

Lego Museums visited Natural History Museum on 12th September 2014 to see the Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story. The exhibit looks through four different types ancestral hominids. These include Homo Antecessor, Homo Heidelbergensis, Homo Neanderthalensis and Homo Sapien. 

Will has lost interest in evolution of man for some reason.
They look through each species individually. In doing so they look at the tools they use, what their environment they lived in, and what short of wildlife which lived around them.

This is a great place for the blind as there are many replicas and reconstructions that people can touch. 

Although if you have kids it might not be the best idea to take them before it closes on the 28th September 2014 as our ancestors didn't necessarily wear clothes. So with their reconstructions and illustrations are accurate AND mostly are nude. So if you don't feel comfortable for you or your children to see full frontal rubber reconstructed nudity then it is probably not a great idea to take them. If this might put you off this is only near the end, so you could easily skip it and still enjoy the exhibit.
