Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

London Children's Museum (London)

Family Tested
High energy

Fun space

The museum's large dimensions and its lovely setting inside a former three-storey school enchanted me. It took us more than two hours to explore the London Children's Museum. On one side, the prehistoric room boasts two complete dinosaur skeletons and a deep cave with dark and realistic nooks and crannies. On the other side is an Arctic Discovery Gallery which was fully renovated in Spring 2011. In the mezzanine on the second floor is the Jellyfish Junction with underwater theme and a sand floor. Farther awaits the “village” with child-size buildings complete with accessories and costumes for different trades. On the third floor, there's a room with a huge tree that houses a slide and hiding places. That's also where you'll find the Space Gallery: A space station with a central control module where large bay windows and monitors allow you to see the visitors in all the other sections of the station. Cargo, docking, experiment module and habitation section complete the gallery, along with projected constellations in the dark on the dome ceiling of the Observation Lab. The works are here!
