Become a scientist, make ink from a mushroom and dig up real dinosaur fossils all in one day at the Natural History Museum in London. Families can enjoy free admission to the museum’s main exhibits, plus numerous hands-on activities for children of all ages. Explore the dinosaur gallery with the animatronic T-Rex, feel the Earth move beneath your feet in the Earthquake Room and discover some of the world’s most important artifacts that helped evolve our very own species and society.
Families can sign up to play interactive games online before, during or after their visit. While at the museum, sign up to create a Dinosaur Scrapbook that can be accessed online, too. The museum offers age specific activities and amenities, such as the science lab for 7 to 14 year olds and Explorer Backpacks for children under 7.
The museum also offers onsite restaurants and cafes, plus picnic areas for families looking to refuel.
