If you’re looking for a day out that appeals to your children's vast-ranging interests, you'll love the Horniman. It’s a one-stop shop for nature lovers with an aquarium, butterfly house and animals on site, plus heaps of museum artefacts and 16 acres of stunning gardens where your kids can search for hidden sundials - will you be able to find them all?

 

Stroll through the incredible animal walk where little ones can get up close and personal with alpacas, goats, sheep, guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens and more. There’s also a Butterfly House and an aquarium. Kids can also explore thousands of real museum objects in the Hands on Base collection, where they can learn about the museum’s artefacts by touching and wearing them.

 

Keen Kidadler Liz said: “It was a nice manageable size compared to the other huge London museums.” She added that her son’s favourite part was the aquarium, her daughter’s was the natural history gallery and hers was the robot zoo. “There’s something for everyone,” she said.

 

Kidadler Natalie said: "I spent around 3 hours [there] including lunch. We did the aquarium, colour exhibit, main hall and butterfly house with two 4 year olds with short attention spans. We go often. It’s brilliant!"
