"The museum of childhood could do a lot more to be child friendly. It’s interesting for adults, but of far less appeal to kids than you’d expect, given the scope to entertain, given the subject matter and all. There weren’t any activities on the day we visited, which didn’t help. Virtually all the exhibits are behind glass. One or two have a button to press to make the train etc go – which is ideal. But many of those that could be interactive aren’t. There are a few things to play with, a bit of dressing up etc, but all of these together won’t sustain more than a dozen children. Even on a quiet day, this museum won’t entertain your kids or you for very long. I’d hate to imagine what it is like on a busy day during half-term. I’d take the kids to the national history museum or horniman before returning here."
