HONEST MUM'S BACK TO SCHOOL: UNMISSABLE MUSEUMS

We love nothing more than visiting museums in this family. Here’s what’s on this Autumn.

The Science Museum - 4 October to 31 March

The Science Museum’s major Illuminating India season will be unmissable. Featuring unique events including a film screening and Q&A with Oscar winning filmmaker Danny Boyle and a tea blending workshop with Bluebird Tea Company mixologists, make sure you book your tickets quick!

 Illuminating India is a celebration of India’s huge contribution to science, technology and maths staged to coincide with 70 years of Indian independence and the British Council’s UK–India Year of Culture 2017–18.

The Science Museum presents two major exhibitions: 5000 Years of Science and Innovation  and Photography 1857–2017 including a kaleidoscopic history of scientific breakthroughs in India and a photographic survey of the country’s technological and cultural history that begins from the conception of photography. Wow.

Natural History Museum - 14 July to 28 February

Whales Beneath the Surface will utterly delight and inspire all the family, allowing you to dive through the fascinating evolutionary journey of whales travelling back 50 million years. With more 100 specimens from the Natural History Museum’s collection, curated together for the first time, you can explore whales, dolphins and porpoises and their underwater environments, discovering how similar they are to we humans. Fascinating stuff!

The British Museum - 14 September to 14 January 2018

2,500 years ago between 900 and 200 BC saw groups of warriors: Scythians, roam Siberia. They were feared and admired in equal measure, at the time but were quickly forgotten, until this exhibition of course which shines a light on them! The Scythians’ encounters with Greeks, Assyrians and Persians were noted down in history but their own culture was sadly lost. Attend this major exhibition to learn more about these formidable warriors.

The V&A - 30 September to 25 February

Opera: Passion, Power and Politics is a collaboration between the V&A and the Royal Opera House manifesting in a landmark exhibition revealing the story of opera from the late-Renaissance Italy to the present. A wonderful opportunity to introduce children to the art of opera, and talso o relish in its history of nearly 400 years, and it’s incredible cultural impact.
