The Horniman Museum

Fabio and I went to the Horniman today with our friends Lucy and John. We're very lucky because it's only just up the road and it's a fantastic place to visit all year round but especially when it's windy and drizzly as it was this morning. First of all there's the lovely gardens, then in the museum itself there's the new aquarium, the hands-on music gallery and changing exhibitions. And best of all, there's the original, Victorian natural history galleries lined with glass cases of scary stuffed animals - including the fox family, the baboons and the gigantic walrus sitting on his rock.
The cafe's good for spaghetti, chips and beans and an ice lolly. And as well as all that there's the real life goats, rabbits and chickens. Even if you don't live nearby, it's worth taking a trip for.
