Bolton Museum & Aquarium

Recently we visited the Bolton Museum and Aquarium. We wanted to take Kory somewhere for the day but we couldn’t decide where and our options were limited… The weather was rubbish, it was freezing and raining which meant going somewhere outdoors was a no go and it was January too so we were skint and wanted to keep costs down.

We ended up visiting our local museum. Kory had never visited a museum before so it was interesting for us to see how he’d like it – or if he would. Which he did! And It turned out to be a lot of fun for us all and better than that, it was totally free! We all had a really nice time, I hadn’t visited a museum for years, I don’t know why because I’m actually a bit of a history geek so I enjoyed myself anyway, I really liked reading all about ancient Egypt and the Egyptian mummies and I think Kory really enjoyed himself too, he especially liked looking at all the different fishes in the aquarium but most of all he loved seeing the different dinosaur skeletons!

Museums and libraries are a great place to visit if you’re strapped for cash as they don’t have to cost anything, it gets you and the kids out of the house, you’re inside out of the miserable, cold weather and it’s something thats enjoyable for the whole family. Our day out to the museum cost us just £3.99 and that was because we bought Kory something from the museum gift shop. Entry to the museum was totally free, we took Kory a packed lunch so dinner didn’t cost anything and because went on a Sunday, we even got lucky with parking too and that didn’t cost us anything either!

Win win!

So that was our most recent trip to the Bolton Museum and Aquarium. Thank you for reading about our day. Have you visited your local museum recently?
