With a huge range things to see including a planetarium, dinosaurs, Ancient Egypt gallery, our bug house and an aquarium - there really is something for everyone in World Museum. We think it's a great place for kids. Happily for us, it's not just us that think this - World Museum has just won the ‘Best day out for under 12s’ at the Family Go Live awards. Yay! So, what is it that appeals most to children at the museum?
And here's what some of you have said:
"People have fond memories of visiting a museum when they were a kid and now, more than ever, there's a lot of stuff for children- both the younger and older ones. We want kids to enjoy and learn about the world in a fun way, so we have a lot of hands-on activities, from touching living sea-creatures to creating your own Javanese shadow puppet. We know we're doing something right when our visitors tell us." Steve Judd, Director of World Museum.
We are delighted so many people have had a great time at World Museum. Find out more about what there is to see and do at World Museum and our Sssnakes Alive! exhibition. If you're visiting us, you can tweet @world_museum to tell us what you enjoy seeing or doing the most. What do you think kids enjoy most about World Museum?
