Come face-to-face with a shark and other animals as you’ve never seen them before at the Natural History Museum.

Animals Inside Out is the museum’s latest exhibition, where you can see the internal systems of almost 100 animal specimens, from a tiny frog to a four-tonne elephant. The exhibition uses the plastination technique invented by Dr Gunther von Hagens and used in his Body Worlds exhibition.

Animals Inside Out at the Natural History Museum until 16 Sep 2012. Book tickets

    Really enjoyed this exhibition. Was really interesting and amazed at the size of the elephant and the cross section of the horse and giraffe were also fascinating.
