Clicked the link and saw, "Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them."  Then I began to read the article and realized it is still too early.

/ For a brief moment I was planning on paying a visit  to London Natural History Museum this winter.
// Still a cool showing of natural history, even if it is wrapped in a Harry Potter parcel paper.

I had to re-read the article carefully before I could be sure they're planning some actual, Natural History and that I shouldn't send the admins another "doesn't belong in STEM" note (not that they listen to me).

"The exhibition puts 90 specimens from the museum's world famous collections next to 30 or so props from the Potter/Beasts movies. Interactive and immersive displays will essentially compare and contrast the different animals - the real from the imagined."

I guess this exhibit could trick some children into being interested, so that could be OK.  Unless their young minds some away from it with confusion between real and fantasy creatures.
