Photo inside the Science Museum

This picture taken inside the Science Museum gives some idea of the scale of the place. This is just one of the rooms, and you can see how the ceiling is easily high enough to suspend that aeroplane on cables. Cars stacked five high on shelves might make it look at first glance like a toy shop, but on closer inspection of the photo you can see people walking around in the building, and therefore everything has to be the full scale size that it is. There's a splendidly restored old lorry, and on the right you can see a lamp from a lighthouse, complete with Fresnel lenses, more easily accessible to the curious eye in the Science Museum than where lighthouses would normally be situated, on rugged rocks, etc.
