Babies in Museums is a guide to visiting museums, castles, historic houses, galleries and places of cultural interest with babies, from newborn to around 2 years old. We have personally tested every museum we review and each blog post is an account of a single visit. Our reviews are offered without bias or agenda. We want to be fair and constructive to every museum we visit.
We aim to provide fellow parents with useful on-the-ground information about visiting museums and cultural places. During every visit we look at; transport options, baby changing facilities, feeding rooms and step-free access.
Museums make an excellent meeting point for NCT groups and they are a brilliant place to go during maternity or paternity leave. Museums are friendly, engaging places for you and your baby.
Why take my baby to a museum? Here are the findings of Sussex Baby Lab, but in short museums are sociable, stimulating, sensory and often free spaces where babies and very young children can explore the world.
