What to do in half term when it's raining and not much money?
Visit this place... You won't be disappointed!
I went today with my 4year old & 11month old boys and my 72 year old nan. It's free to enter and there is so much to see! The staff at reception were so friendly and helpful, there is a room to keep your buggy (there are a lot of steps) and they gave us a map.
My son is into Egyptian mummies and dinosaurs... Perfect. They have an Egyptian exhibition which includes a real mummy! Mummified crocodile, cat head, and child's foot.
The dinosaur exhibition includes an iguanodon which was found in maidstone, lots of fossils, skulls, teeth etc.
there is a room full of different stuffed animals, birds and bugs.
They have old clothes, toys, bikes, clocks, boats, military room, Victoria cross medals, Japanese art gallery. There is seriously so much to see and my boy never once said he was bored! He loved it!
We had lunch in the cafe, the sandwiches are very tasty, they have a deal of hot drink, sand which and crisps for £4.95, a kids deal for £2.75 and you get half a sand which, a drink, a chocolate or piece of fruit and some crisps. (They do not take card so have cash to hand).
The museum is a 1 minute walk from the fremlin walk car park, just behind Boots and Next.
I never knew it existed until a friend recommended and I'm so glad they did.
Well worth a visit.
