Do you take your kids to any museums in the cold weather?

They can be a really good thing to do and if you take a picnic most of them are free!! We tend to go quite a lot over the winter period. Sometimes they also provide trails and activities for kids, especially in the half-terms.

We are quite lucky though as we have the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry which particularly has a lot of hands-on things for children including train sets and senses experiment toys. We also have Bolton Museum and Manchester Museum which have brilliant Egyptian and natural history sections and aquariums.
A little further afield we also have the Harris Museum in Preston and the Grosvenor Museum in Chester, both have lots of Roman artefacts.
