So in the August 2017 school holidays we decided to take the children to the Natural History Museum in London. It's best not to allow your husband to arrange getting to these places we found. So after about an hours walk we finally found ourselves at the Museum, the highlight of our walk being a pitstop at Sainsburys.
Upon arrival we stopped in a queue to have our bags checked and leave any luggage/bags we didn't want to carry around with us.
What an adventure! We need to go back because it was just sooooooo big with such a wealth of information and visually stimulating exhibitions. I wonder if a 5 and 8 year old will enjoy a Museum. And I'm not big on history, I find I get a bit bored with reading boards of information. But this was a different experience completely. We loved the interactive parts and even stopped to read all the fun facts. The Dinosaurs had to be our favourite part of the day.
We stopped to have a picnic as you also have the choice of buying food in one of the food outlets or making your way to an inside picnic area that keeps the children entertained too.
What a place!!
If you're looking for something to do with the children I would really recommend a visit.
