1   Why does she like this museum?

2   Why can anyone visit this museum?

2. Listen to Beth again. Complete the table below.





Type of museum


Answer & Audioscript


1   Because she loves animals.

2   Because the museum is free; you don’t pay any money.






Type of museum

natural history


Beth:   Hello. My name’s Beth and I live in a city called Cambridge. But my favourite museum isn’t in Cambridge. It’s in London, the capital city of England. The Natural History Museum is a museum all about the natural world. It explains things about plants and animals. It’s a beautiful museum. The outside of the museum is also about the natural world. You can see animals and plants on the walls.

I really like this museum because I love animals and I like learning about animals. Some of the animals in the Natural History Museum are ‘extinct’. ‘Extinct’ means there are no more of these animals alive in the world; for example, there are no dinosaurs anywhere in the world now. My favourite activity at the Natural History Museum is the Dinosaur Trail. You walk around and you get to see life-size dinosaurs. They’re only models, of course. But they move and they roar.

And do you know what? You don’t have to pay money to go to the Natural History Museum. That’s right. It’s free. Anyone can visit. Isn’t that great? Now, has anyone got any questions?
