Horniman Museum London



With half term round the corner, here's another London museum to try.  Although the Horniman Museum is a bit out of the centre of the city, you can see the famous London landmarks in the distance from the beautiful gardens.  Set high on a hill, the views are impressive and children can enjoy the outdoor musical instruments and animal walk.  There's plenty of space for a picnic or enjoy a tasty snack in the cafe. There is so much to see, check out the link below.

 The Horniman Museum

The museum is in Forest Hill, South London. Frederick John Horniman opened his house and collection of objects to the public in Victorian times. It contains important collections of anthropology and musical instruments, as well as an acclaimed aquarium and natural history collection.

Entrance to the museum is free but there is a charge for the aquarium, which I didn't visit and some temporary exhibitions.






 Here are some of the gardens and wildflowers




The animal walk, complete with alpacas, goats, sheep, guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens and more.


The natural history and anthropology collections including the over stuffed walrus.





The cafe and conservatory for that necessary spot of refreshment.
