It doesn’t seem five minutes since half term, but Easter is almost upon us – and with it two whole glorious weeks with the family. London’s museums have once again egg-celled themselves with over 700 activities for your off-spring – and all for FREE. That’s right – no entrance or event charges – leaving you more to spend on lining the Easter bunny’s pockets. Egg hunting, bonnet making, nature trailing, scientist meeting, story listening, art creating, dancing, object handling, yarn bombing -very active, very hands on and lots of fun!
To save you from your own Easter hunt, I’ve compiled all of these egg-citing free London museum activities here in one choc-a-block online calendar.
Dates run from Saturday 28 March to Sunday 12 April 2015. It’s a google calendar – so you can easily copy any events that interest you to your own diary. I’ve added the URL of the original listing so please check before you head out. Any errors are blamed on the human condition.
If, like us, you’ve got different weeks off, why not visit one of the larger museums when everyone’s back at school? All of the kudos, ovoid-ing the crowds (hopefully).
For all you non-Londoners, there’s plenty of amazing museums outside the capital – just search to see what’s happening in your local museum.
Whatever you do with you and yours, a very hoppy Easter to you all.
