"We went here with our 5 yr old son,it was…"
We went here with our 5 yr old son,it was brilliant.The cafe on the ground floor was clean,modern & reasonably priced although there is also an area upstairs for people bringing their own food.
It wasnt very busy when we went so we could wander round at our leisure & my son loved looking at all the insects,he especially liked it when i walked underneath the giant spider on the ceiling & pretended to scream.
There is lots to do for all ages of children & the staff were really helpful.
We got the train in as it is literally a 2 min walk from Lime St Station.Read moreLess

Fantastic museum for kids of all ages, loads of activities and plenty to see. Can get busy at weekends / holidays. Tip: when busy the wait for the lifts can be long so ditch your pram/pushchair at the clockroom and take a sling if you have a baby with you.Read moreLess

Fantastic. Especially for kids. All free. Lots of historical stuff (mummies, dinosaurs etc), lots of bugs and unpleasant creatures that kids love. Quite a big place. Coffee shop with great views. Modernised a few years ago. Planetarium. Also next to one of best art galleries outside London. The Walker. Fantastic for Pre-Raphaelites and modern work and art for children. New museum opens on waterfront soon but keeping this one. Also Maritime Museum at Albert Dock.Read moreLess

The museum is always evolving and is stimulating for everyone. The planeterium show is a must my sons loved it.You have to get your free tickets from the ground floor for this. The aquarium is beautiful.Read moreLess
