Tate Modern: A Modern Art Marvel

Our London museum adventure began with a visit to the Tate Modern, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. While my husband was drawn to the iconic architecture, the kids and I were captivated by the vibrant artwork and impressive exhibits. Despite being a modern art museum, the Tate Modern offers plenty of family-friendly activities, including a designated family route that ensures everyone can enjoy the museum experience.

 

British Museum: Unveiling Ancient Wonders

Next on our list was the British Museum, a treasure trove of ancient artifacts and cultural wonders. With its extensive collection of Egyptian artifacts, including the famed Rosetta Stone, the British Museum provided a fascinating glimpse into world history. As homeschoolers, we relished the opportunity to explore relics from civilizations long past, making this museum a must-visit for families eager to dive into the past.

 

Natural History Museum: Dinosaurs and More

No family trip to London would be complete without a visit to the Natural History Museum, home to an awe-inspiring array of specimens and exhibits. From towering dinosaur skeletons to glittering gemstones, this museum had something to delight every member of our family. The kids especially enjoyed the animatronic exhibits and the gorgeous building, making it a highlight of our trip.

Science Museum: Where Learning Meets Fun

For a day of scientific discovery and exploration, we headed to the Science Museum, where we were greeted by an array of interactive exhibits and engaging displays. While some areas felt familiar compared to our local museums, the Wonderlab offered a unique opportunity for hands-on experimentation and discovery. Although it required an additional ticket, the Wonderlab was well worth the cost for the immersive learning experience it provided.

 

Postal Museum: Riding the Mail Rail

Our final museum adventure takes us to the Postal Museum, where we embarked on a journey through the history of mail delivery. While the highlight was undoubtedly the ride on the historic Mail Rail, the museum itself offered a fascinating look at the evolution of postal services. With interactive exhibits and fun activities for kids, the Postal Museum was a hidden gem that left a lasting impression on our family.

Houston Texas Museums: World-Class Museums At Home

As we immersed ourselves in the rich cultural tapestry of London’s museums, I couldn’t help but reflect on the world-class institutions we have right in our backyard in Houston. Living near these museums has truly spoiled us, providing easy access to some of the finest cultural and educational experiences available. From the awe-inspiring exhibits at the Houston Museum of Natural Science to the thought-provoking collections at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, our city boasts an impressive array of museums that rival those found in any major metropolis. As a homeschooling family, we’ve made it a priority to frequent these institutions, taking full advantage of their offerings and fostering a love of learning in our children. While our London adventure was undeniably unforgettable, it served as a reminder of just how lucky we are to call Houston home and have such world-quality museums right at our fingertips.
