London is full of amazing museums, and kids are especially well served. They varying dramatically in terms of size and overall feel, from the imposing and world class British Museum to the niche London Transport Museum.
Coming into summer, most museums are starting to reopen after the Covid-19 related lockdown, which is a real relief for London-based parents with kids to entertain over the holidays.
