Museum of the Moon @ Natural History Museum


The Museum of the Moon is located within the Natual History Museum, ground floor near the Dinosaurs.

It is free to enter if you can find it. There is a map of the whole museum costing £1.00 to help you navigate the roomy museum.

When you’ve found the location, the moon sculpture will certainly take your breath away.

It is huge and so near, I reckon a tall NBA player would be able to reach it quite easily.

The lighting is in muted blue highlighting the spectacular moon just above you.

Because of its size and location, it was easy to take your photo/selfie with the Moon in the background.

This work of art by a British artist, Luke Jerram,  was in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

You can visit this Museum of the Moon at the Natural History Museum until 5 January 2020. It would then be on tour.

Royal Navy’s HMS Enterprise Tour

Royal Navy’s HMS Enterprise Tour

There was a one-day-only tour which was opened to the public for free but you have to book a ticket online to have a chance to go on board the HMS Enterprise.

This was yesterday, 22 June 2019.

To be honest, we went because Peter thought it would be fun to see a real ship called the Enterprise as a homage to Startrek’s starboard.

Startrek or whatever, we were pleasantly surprised with what we found and what we learned from the tour.

HMS Enterprise is huge, really breathtaking.  One must really see how immense it is.

The Royal Navy personnel guiding the tour were so accommodating and willingly answered questions no matter how innocuous they were.  I have to admit I asked a lot of questions.

Science Gallery – London

We happened to pass by this gallery yesterday after a morning spent at the Guy’s Hospital.

Anyway, the doorway to this modern gallery was wide open.  It was so inviting so as we have plenty of time in our hands and plus the fact that it was drizzling a little, we went inside and was pleasantly surprised with the exhibits.

There was a shop where you can buy little knick-knacks.

I was treated to three geometrical rings and they looked

so cute as well.  I also got a heartbeat designed bracelet.

There was also a very welcoming coffee shop with glass walls surround, so you can spend the time people watching around Great Maze Pond, near Guy’s Hospital and the Shard.  This was only on the ground floor.

The first floor is where the exhibits are.  There was that machine that records anything it hears, it is like a neural machine translator that predict or add words to what it hears.

There was that bee house that simulates ideal bee environment, with this machine, we will be guaranteed a healthy bee population and thereby pollination of our crops and trees.

There was, of course, that 3D printer which has been producing lifelike body organs.  Unfortunately for us, the teacher to operate the printer was due to turn up at 1:00 pm and it was only around 11 am when we where there so we missed the actual exhibition of it.

I do recommend this place to spend a couple of hours in.  The building is lovely and minimalist.

And most important they have lovely clean toilets in the basement.

The exhibition is free @

Sarang (South Korean Restaurant)

Restaurant Review & Recomendation

Sarang (South Korean Restaurant)

@ Sarang on St Valentine’s Day

As it is St Valentine’s Day today, the husband took me out for dinner.  I fancied Korean and we have just the place to go.  It is quite near us her in North West London.  It is walking distance or travel by many regular buses going to Golders Green.

The name of the restaurant is Sarang, a Korean word meaning Love.

And it was lovely inside, with lots of chairs, benches and with the ubiquitous barbecue stoves embedded into each table.

When we got there at around 1;30 pm, there were already about 4 couples dining in.
