Bring your kids down to the Bank of England Museum for their annual Easter Eggs-travaganza (apologies for the terrible pun).

It's not easy getting your kids interested in the history of London, but the Bank of England have come up with an egg-cellent idea (another terrible pun, sorry) -- they are going to bribe them with chocolate!

For ten days over Easter they'll be hiding some brightly decorated eggs all around the museum and your kids will have to follow a trail to find them. If they manage to complete the (extremely easy) trail then they'll be able to claim a small prize at the end.

They will also be able to make some rabbit, sheep and chicken masks, and colour in some finger puppets.

Craig has never been on this treasure hunt, but he has been to the Bank of England Museum and written a review on his blog, which you might like to read before you go.

 

Talk about this event

Craig’s review of Bank of England Museum – “I don't suppose many tourists bother to visit the Bank of England Museum (or even the locals) but I've always had a soft spot for this place. But not because of the money. I don't really care about the history of the bank -- I like it because there's lots of architectural history on display inside here. They have cabinets full of old photos and paintings and drawings… continued”

Craig’s review of the cable car I don't like heights. My problem with heights is this: they are always too high. Before you try and ride the cable car take a walk along the river and stare up at it for a second. You get quite a nice view of industrial London by The O2. You can see the factories and cranes… continued
Craig’s review of Natural History Museum If you hate noisy kids then trust me: this isn't the museum for you. Because it's absolutely full of them. They're not the type who hold their daddy's hand and ask their mum for permission to speak. They're the school party type. They come in army-like battalions of thirty o… continued
Craig’s review of Battersea Park Children's Zoo I'm always a bit embarrassed coming to Battersea Park Children's Zoo because I'm obviously not a kid. It's definitely a kid's place.

Craig’s review of Tower of London A bit of bad weather is good. If you can't visit the Tower of London at night then try and come here when it's wet. And I mean proper wet: getting drenched wet.
