The V&A Museum
The Victoria and Albert Museum is a wonderful collection of historical and cultural antiquities from all over the world. It is located on the Cromwell Road, next to the Natural History Museum. It is free of charge to all, including special events and activities at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The Victoria and Albert Museum has some very imaginative ideas for involving children. They offer activity backpacks for different age groups and for different aspects of the museum. Themes include Chinese Treasures, the Metal Detector, the Explorer, Magic Glasses, and The Antique Detective. You pay £5.00 deposit to use the backpack, which is completely refundable when you leave. The backpack has a tape recording with music, instructions and an instruction sheet. You then use the exhibits to help complete puzzles, or dances, or dress up in an Egyptian robe, do a play or tell a story. Your children will really be involved and stimulated at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
A visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum is a fantastic way to capture the interest of youngsters in a wide variety of history and culture. During school holidays they also have an art truck in the gallery with materials and artists ready for children to re-create their own copies of the amazing exhibits. They often run special events for families too. All of this is free of charge and makes a wonderful outing.
