As we continue to make our way through the list, we came to ‘The Museum Challenge’. Living in London we are fortunate enough to have three, free museums all within walking distance of each other, on our doorstep. Our challenge was to visit all three in one day!
First up was the Science Museum, we arrived before doors opened at 10am after a quick visit to our favourite exhibits we headed to the current exhibition ‘Robots’, it was free for children aged 7 and under, which we soon came to realise meant it wasn’t entirely appropriate for them. Some of the exhibits scared the children, however they both enjoyed the interactive robots at the end. We then headed over to the Natural History Museum for the dinosaurs (of course!) after lunch.
We finished our day in the V&A, I had forgotten that they offer family backpacks to compliment the collections, so a quick trip to the Learning Centre to pick up the Agent Animal backpack and we headed off to find the animals hiding in the Japan, China and South Asia galleries. Once we had found them, there was an audio button for each animal and fabric sensory jigsaw cubes to put together an image of each animal, which both boys enjoyed greatly. It was a long and tiring day, but challenge completed!
