Museums for kids
From dinosaurs to creepy crawlies, blue whales to birds, children will be fascinated by the many exhibits on display at the Natural History Museum. Reptiles, insects, minerals, and fossils are among the other sights to see and there’s an opportunity to watch scientists at work in the Darwin Centre. Next door at the Science Museum kids can explore galleries about space, machines and medicine, take a ride in a Red Arrows 3D simulator, or relax in the museum’s IMAX Theatre. Alternatively, show your kids what life was like for you as a child at the V&A Museum of Childhood. Displays include construction toys, model cars, dolls’ houses, puzzles and must-have 20th century toys.
