Home to one of the largest permanent collections in the world, the British Museum documents the history and culture of mankind from the beginning.
There is plenty of interactivity to keep kids entertained. Free trails are provided for a range of ages, such as the ‘Hunting for Dragons’ trail about fantastic creatures and the ‘Travelling in Time’ trail about Ancient Greece. The museum also recommends specific exhibits for children to investigate further, such as the Rosetta Stone and mummified bull figures. Just don’t drop anything!
While the British Museum is free to enter, giving a donation is recommended so bring cash. For some special exhibitions, tickets start at £10 without a membership, however under 16s always go free. Check what’s on at the moment here.
Daily object handling sessions are a drop-in, free of charge way of seeing ancient artefacts up-close.
