This post has been long over-due and should have been posted right after Little T’s jaunt in the park with Pinky the helium cat. As mentioned on that post, T and I went to Exeter with her dad and while he was working, we (the country mice) visited the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery.
If you happen to find yourself in Exeter with your little ones and have lots of free time to kill, this museum is a must-visit! There are lots of different things to see and explore in each rooms, an activity/play area, a tea room and of course the museum shop, though we were disappointed not to find any dinosaur toys in there. And another reason why I really liked the place, entrance fee is free and for a lot of parents, that’s music for our ears 😉
Don’t forget to get your little bee bag in the entrance, complete with a bee costume:
I can see you mummy!
And since it was a saturday, there were lots of busy bees buzzing inside the museums with their parents in tow.
Here’s Little T inspecting herself in the mirror. Have to say we spent more than a couple of minutes here and I actually had to persuade her to move on.
Little T gazes up at the elephant and concludes that she is indeed very small.
I bet T is thinking “I’m glad he’s encased!”
Look mummy! It’s the bear like in my DVD!
At the play-area Little T had fun playing with blocks, animals and other toys. If you see her with her lips out like in the photo above, that only means that she’s concentrating!
After shedding off her bee-outfit and roaming around all the rooms in the museum at least 100 x, little T announced that it was time to go. Indeed it was – I was exhausted. But she still seemed to have boundless energy as we headed off to the park.
