The Natural History and Science museums had an epic Twitter war

Last week, a highly educational Twitter war erupted between two of the UK’s most prestigious museums – The Science Museum and the Natural History Museum (NHM).

The spat between the two institutions began when a Twitter user asked the NHM a seemingly innocent question on #AskACurator day.

The NHM responded with a short but glorious answer.

Not to be outdone, the Science Museum fired back.

This geeky back-and-forth lasted two days, pitting dinosaurs against robots, cockroaches against plastic boots, sea dragons against submarines.

Eventually, the Victoria and Albert Museum stepped in to break up the fight, with the two sides commending each other for putting on a good show.

Who do you think won? The Science Museum or the NHM?
