Museums are part of what makes London a great city to visit as well as to live in. Many of the greatest museums originate from the 19th century when the Victorian visionaries founded many of today’s most popular museums.
The enormous volume of objects gathered by all the passionate collectors of the British Empire created the foundation for what we can go and see today. World-leading museums in history, art and science are often within walking distance, like in South Kensington. Here you’ll find the V&A, Natural History Museum and Science Museum right next to each other on the same street!
Luckily time has not stood still since Victorian times, with museums developing interactive ways to engage people. Most, if not all of the major London museums have a strong focus on family-friendly activities. With exhibitions adapted to toddlers, as well as older school-children your typical day at the museum is likely to be a success. Visiting London museums with our own kids for years, we hope these reviews will be helpful when planning your next museum visit in London.
