Details

Content for this book has been developed around themes that showcase all of the Museum galleries. Each theme is based on a question – What is a dinosaur? What is ecology? How old is the Earth? – that can be explored within the galleries. The book also goes beyond the galleries to explore behind the scenes at the Museum including what our scientists do, what’s in our collections and why they are so useful.

This fun, interactive guide incorporates the latest Museum map and can be dipped into as necessary, or used to follow a route through the galleries.

Kids Only aims to support family visits and facilitate children’s learning and enjoyment in the galleries and beyond. It is complemented by the Museum website and will make the Museum more accessible to those unable to visit.
