British Museum

Today we went to the British Museum to look at the Egyptian and Roman galleries. As usual for London's most popular and free museum it was packed.

Insiders tip: free lockers (saving you £1.50 an item at the cloakroom!), toilets without a queue and quiet picnic tables are found in the Ford Centre for Young Visitors; downstairs near the obelisk at the front right of the great hall.

First stop was the families desk where we borrowed some activity backpacks. These are really good and contain hands-on activities to do in the galleries such as puzzles, feely bags, mosaics, matching cards, dress ups and more. We tried out the Egyptian mummies and the Roman jobs backpacks.
