Museums aren’t forces to be trifled with. They’re huge. They hold a plethora of information. They’re smarter than you. And they can apparently battle with much more vigor than any of us.
Twitter user @bednarz decided to throw two of London’s most influential museums into the online battle ring by asking a highly controversial question: science or history?
The Natural History Museum stepped up instantly, but the Science Museum was also quick to snap back. The two continued with some tasteful back-and-forth:
We have dinosaurs. No contest.— NaturalHistoryMuseum (@NHM_London) September 13, 2017
What about this merman & we do have a Polaris nuclear missile as Khalil says! pic.twitter.com/uczMFrvKIw— Science Museum (@sciencemuseum) September 13, 2017
Jenny Haniver sees your merman, never bring a nuke to an earth-shattering meteorite fight, and our cockroach specimens w/ survive us all 😉 pic.twitter.com/mbEgDseZ7G— NaturalHistoryMuseum (@NHM_London) September 13, 2017
We see your cockroach and... whack it with a welly pic.twitter.com/ITEPuplGHK— Science Museum (@sciencemuseum) September 13, 2017
There is never just one cockroach. And we quietly melt your plastics with our lava. pic.twitter.com/DaaJc5V5lJ— NaturalHistoryMuseum (@NHM_London) September 13, 2017

When @bednarz tried to call it quits, the museums did not falter. The momentum continued on both sides of the field.
Shall we call #museumwars a draw then? Shake hands, go home and have a nice cuppa tea.— Bednarz (@bednarz) September 13, 2017
The duel commences for a lot longer, which you can catch on this entertaining and almost neverending thread.
Though we can’t tell you who the winner is (it’s your decision, after all!), the Victoria and Albert Museum reminded us that it’s really just all about LOVE.
These are the spuds you’re looking for…
