We enjoyed the space exhibition and the modern world room on the ground floor. Lots to look at, however we didn't want to pay to see either of the films. There are so many interactive stations upstairs that we skipped most of them. There's too...More

Always great to walk around the Space hall. It’s free to get in, so don’t think twice. The top floor has an interesting games area.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

It’s better to go on weekdays first thing in the morning (opens at 10:00 am). That gets you in early together with whatever people might be there at that time and lots of time to take breaks and get around the entire museum... More
