If you just read this post's headline with a bit of skepticism, let me tell you, I would have too. Museums and kids? What a combo, right? Well, not this one!
Last Friday a friend called me to see if I wanted to join her and her 16-month-old toddler to the Naturhistorisk Museum at Botanisk hage (more about Botanisk hage
How did our little ones cope with the visit?
They actually really enjoyed it. Ok, the whole tour took forever, since toddlers don't yet conceive 'moving' as 'walking forward', but in circles, backwards and all directions instead. Let's just say, we spent a looot of time at the dinosaurs' section, which is at the very beginning. The guard at the entrance, knew us almost by the name in the end ;). But overall, I would actually really recommend this as a family plan, both for toddlers and older kids. It's a great alternative to outdoor plans, specially now that winter is slowly approaching.
After our visit, we went to the café at Botanisk hage (2 min walk), had lunch there and changed nappies. And to finish our day (and also our daughter's energy reserves ;), we paid one last visit to the playground next to Botanisk hage (more about this playground in this blog post).
