One of the really iconic 就只是純粹喜歡它們。而本館最招牌的 specimens here 標本之一、 that everyone remembers when they come for a day out is our blue whale. 每個人花一整天來這裡逛都會記得的，就是我們的藍鯨標本。 I love the fact that you get to see the skeleton as well, 讓我很欣賞的一點是你同時也能看到鯨魚的骨架， not just the model but they've got the bones above. 不只是外型，標本頂部還看得到骨頭。 And you can see it's a mammal, 所以你能學到這是一隻哺乳類動物， you can see that it's got a mammalian-type bone structure, 有著哺乳類特有的骨骼架構， something you completely miss when you see the rest of the body. 若你只看外型的話，就可能錯過這個特徵了。 Behind the scenes we actually have lots of specimens 事實上，除了展區外，我們還收藏了很多 collected by Charles Darwin on his 1831 Beagle voyage. 達爾文在1831年搭乘小獵犬號航海時蒐集而來的標本。 You can see lots of them have yellow paint on them, 你可以看到，很多標本罐上頭都畫了黃色顏料， which actually signifies these were the first specimens 這其實是為那些首次 of this species that were ever discovered. 發現的物種做記號。 I think my favourite specimen that was donated 在捐贈的標本中，我想我最喜歡的 was from some fishermen in 2004 who caught a giant squid off the coast of the Falkland Islands. 是2004年，由一群漁夫在福克蘭群島海岸抓到的大王魷魚。 They donated it to the museum here on condition we put it on display. 那些漁夫將它捐給博物館，前提是我們要讓它展出。 The museum's based in South Kensington. 本館就坐落在南肯辛頓， It's quite a rich area. There's lots to do round here. 這裡是個富人區，有很多景點好逛， We've got the V&A, we've got the Science Museum, 有V&A 博物館、科學博物館、 we've got the Royal Albert Hall 皇家亞伯特音樂廳， and, of course, we've got Hyde Park behind us. 當然，本館後頭就是海德公園。 Just like the Natural History Museum, 就像自然史博物館， where every time you come and visit you see something new, 每次來到這裡都能有新發現。 I think that's the same with London. 我想這就像是身處倫敦， Every time you visit, every time you walk around, 每次當你來訪，到處走走， you see something you'd never noticed before. 都能發現一些之前來時沒注意到的， You see new places, you get new experiences 你也可能看到新景點、有新的體驗， and it really is an amazing place. 倫敦，就是一個這麼棒的城市!
