DH has just come back from a day out with the DDs at the National Gallery in London and recommends it.

DH took DD1 (7.5) and DD2 (nearly 6) to the National Gallery in London today. It wouldn't have been my first thought for children this age, but DH reports that the DDs had a really good day there. According to DH the Gallery wasn't over-busy and there were only a dozen or so children there, despite some very well executed children's activities (story-telling, craft work etc.). The National Gallery has a picnic area and entrance is free.

Thanks for the tip. Don't know why I thought most children's activities at museums were available only at the weekend, or at half term. Or was this a special summer holiday program?

I think the 'look and talk about a painting and then make a music box' and the story-telling session were summer holiday activities.

Alot of the museums in Surrey seem to have summer activities too.
