This autumn, we’re shouting about the magic of museums. Summer is over and the great outdoors are looking slightly less appealing, so stay inside and have fun at your local museum.
Visiting a museum is a great activity for all the family – it encourages learning for children and parents alike, and can help families to bond by encouraging a shared interest.
From history to STEM, nature to art, there are hundreds of topics to discover. With interactive exhibitions, nature trails, talks, activities and more, visiting a museum is a great way to spend time as a family. Promote learning and get inspired this October by visiting your local museum!
