Entrance to the Red Zone at the Natural History Museum
In this beautiful capture by Elia Locardi, we see the awesome entranceway to the Red Zone at the Natural History Museum in London, England. Locardi is fairly prolific on Google+ with over 569,000 connections. He also runs the wildly popular BlametheMonkey.com, a travel & HDR photography tutorial site.
Established in 1881, the Natural History Museum is one of three large museums on Exhibition Road in South Kensington, London, England (the others are the Science Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum). The museum is home to life and earth science specimens comprising some 70 million items within five main collections: Botany, Entomology, Mineralogy, Palaeontology and Zoology. The museum is a world-renowned centre of research, specialising in taxonomy, identification and conservation.
Like other publicly funded national museums in the United Kingdom, the Natural History Museum does not levy an admission charge. [Source]
