We recently attended the best museum exhibition we have ever attended.
The Extreme exhibition in the tiny Horniman museum is on until November and really was just fantastic. Completely hands on.
It does cost to enter but a sister told us about the family membership. We basically got our money back for the visit by paying £32 for the year. And we get free access to all exhibitions as many times as we want.
Here are some pics. I highly highly highly recommend attending. We’ll definitely be going back again inshaAllah!
Game to play on a large screen about the extremes of the earth.
Huge block of ice and then a screen that measures the heat. Kids had so much fun rubbing their hands and faces on the ice and then walking over to the screen to see the cold blue bits.
Huge screen where you can take pictures as though you’re standing in the Arctic and then email it to yourself right there on the spot.
Measuring how much water in your body.
Artificial Cave to walk through
Machine that shows how and why we sweat.
And there was much more.
There are other free exhibitions in the museum too …. Some not suitable as display voodoo etc. But if you buy the family annual membership then there’s an aquarium downstairs too.
Oh and outside are beautiful grounds with a small farm area with a few animals and picnic indoor area near the farm. It’s a full day out. Did I say I highly recommend it lol! If you can, definitely arrange a visit and sign up to their newsletter as their exhibitions change and are normally fantastic like this one.
