I love that most of the Museums in London are free. We decided to visit one morning of our trip just to keep the cost down because London can be expensive!
One thing to remember is that because it’s free, it’s busy. and because it’s busy, there are lots of people – lots those people are children. They’re generally overexcited and uncontrollable so prepare to be pushed in front of, shoved and walked into by multiple little people. They also scream.
The bottom floor of the science museum was the best. It was a look-at-things type of room. One was all about space – my favourite subject. The lighting was horrific though and it was hard to read some of the descriptions. The Information Age celebrates more than 200 years of innovation in information and communication technologies. I love things like that – apart from when I saw Windows 3.1 which I used to have. You know you’re old when you see things you owned in a museum. Ha.
The other floors are more touch-the-things type rooms which I’m not as into, but they are great for kids as they have lots of hands-on stations! The ‘who am I’ section is pretty cool explaining what makes us unique.
A great way to kill a few hours and lots fo learn in this museum!
