    Preposition at

    Hi, there!

    Could you please tell me if this is correct?

    "You can see dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum". Do you use the preposition at with Museum?!

    Please help!

    Re: Preposition at

    In some cases you can also use 'in' (e.g. 'There's a self-service café in the British Museum, at the foot of the main stairs' - specifying a particular position), but at is usually the better choice.
