Spend the day out having fun and learning at the same time at the brilliant Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. The building first opened its doors in 1885 and is now home to more than 40 separate galleries. One of the main attractions is the Pre-Raphaelite collection, but the constantly changing exhibitions are also impressive. Kids can pick up a free family trail guide at the entrance to help them explore the galleries whilst hunting for ‘Animals in Art’ or ‘Hidden Engines’. The building also offers large locker storage for families on the move. Science lovers should head to the Thinktank. Browse 250,000 specimens from natural science, learn about the solar system in the planetarium or visit the Science Garden, packed with interactive experiments and play areas for all ages. There’s also a free kids’ park for children under 7, and a café with a children’s menu and some healthy meals. Fancy a little outdoor time and some sports education? Head out to the green pastures of the The Edgbaston Golf Club for one of their Junior Golf lessons.
