Having done the NHM, Science and the Transport museum, we plumbed for a days visit.
The weather was glorious, so it to be frank a tad busy. The steps outside are a great place to rest and grab a coffee. But Lordy the drinks are not cheap.
It's free but they like £5 off you, it's worth stopping and thinking about that. We checked out a few of the rooms, to let our kids wander and see the size of the exhibits. Their imaginations went crazy when we saw the blue serpent and face mask. All good stuff.
We had tickets for the Vikings, really busy, perhaps a little staid. The curator did a fine job, but missed the point a little. Kids want to see swords, axes and gory stories of how horrible the Vikings were. It was a little lost of them.
The brooches and the 40m long boat are masterpieces.
The gem is sitting in the Great Court and looking up at the ceiling. Spell binding!
