5 Family Friendly Museums on Pinterest 2

Back when I was at university studying Tourism specifically the unit in Cultural Tourism we learnt that a museum needed:

  • “tell a storey

  • make the asset come alive

  • make the experience participatory

  • and make it relevant to the tourist.” *

There are some fantastic family friendly museums about and I have found Pinterest pictures of 5 museums that meet this criteria for children.

So pack your day bag and get going on a day trip to a museum.
