Central hall at the natural history museum

If like me, you like the mystery and ambiance that one can feel whilst reading Verne, you will love this cathedral like building… Even if animals and plants are not your “cup of tea”, even if you could not care less about plants or the evolution of species… Every detail , every corner shows the craftsmanship and ambition of a time, now forgotten by most…. You might think I have lost my marbles for what I am about to say, but… if you want to know how London was (or maybe how it would have been if Verne had his own way) get yourself a copy of Steamboy and travel to the place I wish I could…
