Museum of London Docklands

IMG_9552So we checked out @museumoflondon Docklands today which, I have to say, is so well catered for kid wise. Mudlarks the children’s interactive gallery was excellent, a mini soft play area plus various interactives which educate children on the stories told in the museum in a fun & stimulating way. The current family friendly exhibition Tunnel: The Archaeology of Crossrail is probably better suited for slightly older children than Ivy but she was still pretty happy running about in her hard hat, tapping the various buttons and playing with the train set at the end. We also walked up a 19th century street (very cool!!) and sat in this Docklands family home. There are family tours on a Sunday where you will hear all about life in London. Facilities are fab and the best bit…it’s all FREE!
