April- June 2015
I am not sure if I mentioned this before but the children’s galleries on the ground floor of National Maritime Museum has finished its renovations in April. Both of the kids enjoy exploring that space for kids and there are a number of corners for them to play-act and interactive!
When we first visited the gallery in April, it was relatively empty as no one knew it was opened yet. The last time we visited in June, the gallery was much more crowded. So if you are planning a trip to visit with your little bubs, the most ideal timing would be weekday mornings during term times. The best thing is that entry is free! So, there are very few reasons to not visiting the National Maritime Museum since we live so close to it.
Here’s Ryan stoking the boiler of the steamship!
There is also a small fish shop at the corner for the children to pretend to be shoppers and shop keepers. They get to select the seafood that they want and weigh time. Great for imagination!
So here are my kids trying to pretend to be Octonauts!
After the indoor play, we usually head off to the grounds of the Royal Naval College to let the kids run even more! They love to chase after those pigeons, feeding them bread crumbs. The running about is endless, I tell you. All these activities in the afternoon after Ryan’s nursery and Gillian’s playgroup usually means E and I would get some proper telly time after dinner! Heehee!
