Opened in 1881, but dating back as an idea to to 1753, this is ‘the’ museum for children of all ages. A hop and skip from South Kensington or Gloucester Road tube stations’ means it is also easy for even the most directionally challenged people to find! I speak from first hand experience of this debilitating sydrome. The exhibits cover such a wide range that is simply too much to take in on one visit. The architecture itself is also a delight and it well worth to take time out from the exhibits to lets your eyes run over every nook and cranny. The icing on the cake is that admission is free. What more do you want?
