For today I start with stained glass windows, within the Queens Lantern. This new addition to the museum honours both Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II.
Historic displays of the building are here too. This one refers to the stories of the building being haunted.
This view looks into the central atrium from the Lantern.
And two more views of Gaia.
The next gallery is the Water Gallery. It is dominated by the skeleton of an immature blue whale.
Panels examine the importance of water on Earth, its presence elsewhere in the universe, and its qualities.
An artifact here includes a quartz crystal still containing water. Very old water.
