Friday Favorites: Natural History Museums

I've been wanting to start a regular, weekly feature, so here it goes! Welcome to Friday Favorites. As a designer, I am influenced by so many things, and I thought it would be fun to share those inspirations with you guys.

This week, I'm featuring museums of natural history. These are museums that teach us about our history relating to animals, plants, rocks, and our environment. They provide an excellent opportunity to draw inspiration from things such as dinosaur fossils, bird specimens, and rare rocks and minerals. Our natural surroundings can inspire us through their unique textures, patterns, colors, or shapes. We might be inspired by how a creature adapted to a certain way or life or how another animal became extinct.

I have included a few photos of my visits to the Natural History Museum of London.
