The Best Family-Friendly Museums in London
1/11 The British Museum
Big Bus Tour: Stop 49, 50 & 52
Perhaps the most well known treasure trove in London, The British Museum is home to more than eight million items, from all over the world and all historical eras. The sheer scale, not to mention the number of visitors (6.7 million last year), can seem overwhelming unless you do some homework and decide on a focus. The rotating special exhibitions and the collection of mummies are always favorites with kids. Older children and parents also won’t want to miss the famous Rosetta Stone.
There are also special events for children, mostly on weekends and holidays.
Price: Entrance is free.
Open: Daily from 10 am to 5:30 pm (8:30 pm Fridays).
Tube: Tottenham Court Road or Holborn
