Horniman wins Family Friendly Museum Award

Congratulations to the Horniman – our favourite local museum has won the Telegraph Family Friendly Museum Award.  As regular visitors, we at babydaytripper are familiar with its many family friendly elements, but it’s fantastic to see this being recognised more widely.

If you’ve never been to the Horniman Museum, it’s well worth a visit from any part of London. Its eclectic mix of exhibits, inspired by (and incorporating) the personal collection of Victorian tea merchant Frederick Horniman, ranges from stuffed animals to musical instruments via tribal masks and other anthropological treasures. Children can get stuck in at the Hands on Base areas throughout the museum, trying out musical instruments and learning about the natural world.

On top of the main collection, there is an aquarium, animal enclosure, musical instrument garden, and beautiful expansive gardens with views across London. Look out for the temporary exhibitions and  the regular family activities which take place both indoors and in the gardens throughout the year.
