Explore the fascinating world of the Victorian judges at this award-winning historic house.
Victorian Fun for Kids!
At last, an historic house where you don't have to worry about bringing the kids! We welcome families and our 'hands-on' policy means that your children can feel for themselves what life was like in a Victorian house.
As well as being able to touch, they also have:
Activity boxes for kids (and kids at heart) to explore, with dressing up clothes, toys and activities.
Their own guidebook, Interesting Stuff, Gross Facts and a Bit About the Building, to help them investigate the rooms.
The audiotour, which features 'Victorian' characters from the building's past talking about their lives - our machines are very robust, easy to use and we are happy for everyone, however small, to use them.
KiDS GO CHEAPER IN 2013!
We know that everyone is having a hard time in today's financial world. We'd like to help you on your visit to us by bringing down the admission prices for kids to the museum. Under 5s are free and up to 16, or in full time education are now only £3.50
Have you seen the CBBC game show Relic: Guardians of the Museum, in which children, summoned to the British Museum by spooky tour guide Agatha, have just one night to uncover the secrets of a relic held inside the museum?
Want to be Guardian of the Museum yourself? Then try out the new Relic Trail around our very own museum. You will be asked to complete five challenges: Memory; Physical; Discovery; Reasoning & Riddle. If you complete all challenges correctly, you will receive a certificate from the ghostly Agatha showing you are a worthy Guardian of the Museum.
Download your trail here and bring it with you when you visit, or pick one up when you arrive.
