LONDON HAS SO MANY MUSEUMS THAT PEOPLE ARE SPOILT FOR CHOICE!
HERE ARE SOME OF THE TOP MUSEUMS IN LONDON THAT BOTH ADULTS AND THEIR LITTLE ONES WILL ENJOY!
There are so many museums in London, but it can be hard to find which ones are actually "child friendly" and don't bore the parents in the process! So LICKALIX has found, what we think, are the top museums that kids and parents can enjoy together!
THE VICTORIA AND ALBERT MUSEUM
The V&A doesn't immediately shout 'kid friendly' as being the world's largest museum of the decorative arts and design, but hear us out! The museum has a wonderful garden in the centre with a shallow fountain that the kids can run around in during the warm summer months. It also hosts a variety of kid friendly events that are usually free. The museum, during the school holidays holds even more events and pop up performances in effort to keep you and your children entertained! The V&A also boasts a fantastic cafe that has three gorgeous dining halls, as well as a kids menu (it is a bit pricy, be warned.) Overall, the V&A is a perfect museum for you and your kids to enjoy!
THE NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
The Natural History Museum, it is a bit of an obvious choice isn't it? But it is still so amazing and kid friendly! Currently the Museum is hosting several events, some of which include the Sensational Butterflies exhibition as well as the Darwin's Fossil Mammals which is where you would join one of the Museum scientists and discover how Darwin's study of fossils shaped the way he thought. The Natural History Museum is also hands on, which is great for your little ones .
THE NATIONAL GALLERY
The National Gallery can be described as being placed in the centre of the city, there is just so much going on around this beautifully historical museum! While it may not seem kid friendly (nothing to touch, and not too many places to sit) it is still on the list! The National Gallery holds kid friendly events and even guided tours (which the parents can join in on as well!) It also is great for if you are just wanting to get away for a while. It is also pretty pram-friendly, which is great for smaller kids, and there is a cloak room where you can drop off your things if you do not wish to carry them. It is also attached to the National Portrait Gallery, might be a bit much for your little one if you try to do both in one day!
