Review: Robot Zoo at the Horniman Museum

There are very few things in life for which I will commit to being somewhere with two under fives at 9am in the morning. Especially when this somewhere is literally the other side of London – and up a steep hill! But a press invite to ‘Robot Zoo’ exhibition at the Horniman was one of these few things, especially… Continue reading Review: Robot Zoo at the Horniman Museum

Review: Fire! Fire! at the Museum of London

Most blog posts end with disclaimers – this one will begin with a rather big one, slash news update. Disclaimer: I now work at the Museum of London! I’m completely delighted to have landed the job of my dreams in my favourite museum (shhhh! Don’t tell the others!) I’ve spent the last year trying to a)… Continue reading Review: Fire!

Review – Plantastic at Horniman Museum

I’m not sure if the blossoms have been more spectacular this spring – or if by pointing out EVERY SINGLE FLOWER on our walks, the toddler has turned me into a plant addict! Inspired by the toddler’s love of nature, we made the voyage south of the river to Plantastic – an exhibition dedicated to plants at the Horniman… Continue reading Review – Plantastic at Horniman Museum

Review – Horrible Histories: Spies at Imperial War Museum

I’d make a rubbish spy, if this trip was anything to go by. I forgot to check the route to the Imperial War Museum before sitting down on the tube, and left the camera at home! Apologies for the poor quality mobile snaps in advance – let’s pretend I wanted to give this post a reconnaissance feel. I… Continue reading Review – Horrible Histories: Spies at Imperial War Museum

Review – Quentin Blake: Inside Stories at House of Illustration

Confession time: I love Quentin Blake. I wouldn’t dare try imagine my favourite Roald Dahl books without him. One of the joys of parenthood has been sharing the stories I loved as a child with my own daughter. That is, until she learnt to read by herself, just as we were getting to the good stuff.… Continue reading Review – Quentin Blake: Inside Stories at House of Illustration

Review: Ancient Lives, New Discoveries at the British Museum

Last week the British Museum held an exclusive morning view for families of their exhibition Ancient Lives, New Discoveries. The same price as a normal ticket got you exclusive access to the exhibition (apart from members of the museum), a tour by the Exhibition Curator and a free tea or coffee afterwards. Plus the promise that you… Continue reading Review: Ancient Lives, New Discoveries at the British Museum

Review: Digital Revolution at the Barbican

My last review took two and a half weeks to write – this one I’m giving myself two and a half hours*. Why the rush? Because it’s of a fantastic interactive exhibition full of lights, noise and adventure which ends very, very soon! So soon you only have two weekends to fit it in. Held… Continue reading Review: Digital Revolution at the Barbican
