The Sedgwick Museum is another great place to take the children to get them interested in science. It contains over 1.5 million fossils, rocks and minerals. You can use step stools and magnifying sheets to look at sample and there are some that you can touch.
It is a free museum as are most of the others in Cambridge. It has great displays and also has items from Darwin’s collections. It is organised so that you can take a walk through time. It is also located right by the Grand Arcade so it’s easy to mix some shopping up with some learning.
This is another idea for when you are looking for some indoor activities.
All the Best!
