We need to see the dinosaurs again before we leave - JD, 6
If you can make it to Leicester, I highly recommend visiting the New Walk Museum & Art Gallery, which is an easy walk from the centre of town.
It has wide ranging collections and displays, with areas devoted to Ancient Egypt, Dinosaurs, Wild Space, World Arts and a sensory-rich 'Den' for the under 5s.
The kids absolutely loved working round the spacious museum and interacting with the exhibits. Check it out.
When you need a refuel, there is a child-friendly cafe near the entrance offering drinks, lunch and plenty of cakes, including gluten free options.
The New Walk Museum also boasts a gallery on the first floor. It was closed for refurbishments when we visited, but it will reopen in Spring 2014, displaying arts and crafts as well as Picasso ceramics.
Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm
Sunday: 11am - 5pm
Free admission (small charge for certain activities on event days).
