It's All About Food


Butterflies in a steamy room is not what I expected to find when visiting the new British Museum of Food but their role here is to tell us about the importance of pollination and that not only are bees under threat due but so are butterflies.

You are invited to lounge in a massage chair while watching a journey travel through your insides, weird but interesting.  Another room looks rather like a polling booth, only here you sample chocolate and then cast your vote.

A series of art adorns the walls that lead you upstairs and a small but interesting collection of menus from different periods are on display.

The concept is a great one but for a £5 entry fee there really ought to be a lot more exhibits and information.  Early days yet but great potential.

I miss the butterflies. Don't see as many as I used to do. We need to fix that.
