Encouraging news from South Kensington, where three of the country’s top family museums are set to reopen.
The ‘Big Three’ will all be back in action from August, as follows:
Natural History Museum: 5 August
V&A: 6 August (lower sections, with further galleries opening 27 August.
Science Museum: 19 August
Importantly, entry is free but tickets need to be pre-booked via the museums’ websites. Needless to say, the three venues will all have social distancing measures in place, and a raft of other precautions to keep you and your family as safe as possible.
Cafes will be open at all three museums. Both the Natural History Museum and the V&A has large outdoor spaces to explore as well as their famous galleries.
Welcome back to a trio of treasure houses, who are as much friends as museums.
At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things, that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.
We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it's important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.
Kidadl provides inspiration for everything from family days out to online classes, arts, crafts and science experiments. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.
Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
We also link to other websites, but are not responsible for their content.
