"I agree its a shame that museums aren't more welcoming to kids but I have to ask - have any of you actually said anything to these places? If you don't complain, no-one will ever know that you had a totally unsatisfactory visit and will think they are doing fine. Most museums have a comments box at least that lets you say what you think.

These places all have lots of visitors and lots more funding than the local museums who have to generate their own income yet are often more welcoming. Maybe Time Out needs to use a bit more imagination when writing articles and not just stick to central london - I certainly wouldn't venture into central london to visit a museum with my 6 month old at the moment - even negotiating the tube is bad enough..."
