I went here when I was little for YEARS. It was an informational trip, full of excitement and imagination and I can image kids would still enjoy this. A reviewer commented earlier that they should incorporate more technology, but really I think that they should just update the well loved and worn exhibits. Good for kids entering kindergarten and thru... More

I was shocked at the lack of activities and exhibits and the overall condition of the Children's Museum. Unless there is a scheduled event, I wouldn't waste my money on the price of admission. Surely London can do better than this?

When our 3 kids were younger, we bought an annual pass to the London Children's Museum. They loved playing around, and my wife and I enjoyed sitting on the sidelines, watching -- catching a breath and chatting. We'd visit the museum every few weeks. We have fond memories of the place.

This place has been a family staple for over 25 years. There is lots of interesting and educational exhibits to entertain children until they are Tweens. If is worth the stop.

It's sort of old school and dated at times--- but it was neat seeing something so simple and fun! the two year old had an absolute blast. She thought it was so much fun, and she met many kids to play with. Very interactive spot for play !

Nice place for a wide range of ages. A must visit with your kids when in London. Certainly they will profit a lot and the will enjoy the variety of activities they will do there.

We took our 4 1/2 year old grandaughter here to kill some time one afternoon. She lives year round in Cancun with her mother and father, so she would never have the opportunity to see a childrens museum. Granted, there is a lot to see at the museum, the displays are geared to things of interest for children, dinosaurs, underwater... More

Suitable use for a converted residence. Exhibits not all geared towards younger children. Industry/profession wing too commercialized and native people's area lacks focus
