Everything is very child-friendly and this was honestly one of the best historic museums for children I've ever been to - interactive, engaging and informative.
Depending on how much you enjoy museums you could spend any where from half an hour to several hours here.

... in the past, including the California Academy of Science, the Ontario Science Center, the American Museum of Natural History, the Royal Ontario Museum and the various Smithsonian museums in Washington, DC.
We also went into the butterfly house where we saw lots of different butterflies and cocoons.....we found the whole experience expensive as most of the London museums are free; but it was amazing!!!

One of the Best Museums we have been to, lots of entertaining events and interactive activities for my kids.
Having been to a number of children's museums around the country, this one is one of the very best with so much to explore, learn, and experience first-hand.
