About once a month. My daughter adores the Queensland Museum, which is very kid friendly. It's been a while since I've had a chance to go to another one. I'd like to again when the kids are older and I might get more time to look at the exhibits. I like natural history exhibits and ones of antique clothing, jewellery and religious artifacts. I adored the British Museum in London and would love to visit it again one day.
Yes,museums are nice but with kids it is tough to take out time for it.

I don't usually prefer to go to a museum but mum usually drags me there.
That's a classic.

I never used to go to museums until I joined Weekend Notes, and then I started going to them quite frequently. I must admit I haven't been to one in the last few months though, as things have been a bit hectic.

I think my favourite museum was the Museum of Childhood.
I don't go as much as I should or even could.

I love them, and people have gone to great trouble to set them up.
Some are a walk in the past, and I really like that part.
A little like time travel.
I think kids need to go more often, and I think schools should keep that alive.
It's a wonderful teaching tool, for young and old.I think it has to be on my list also for 2014!
I have been to the Power House in Sydney a few times, just LOVED it.
I frequent my local museum quite often as I am a volunteer. It is such a good way to learn more about them and be involved in the community.
It increases our knowledge.

Only once in a while. Prefer Art Gallery's.
I bought a yearly membership this year for the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. We go about once a month as the kids really love it. I like that it has exhibitions to keep them interested and learning at the same time as having things like the Love Lace Exhibition which I absolutely loved. We always finish our visit with a trip to the Wiggles Exhibition, which my kids are still young enough to enjoy.
I would have to say one of the best museums I have seen is the one at Pearl Harbour in Hawaii. You can do it at your own pace with their audio tour system. The exhibits are amazing and standing at the USS Arizona memorial where you see oil leaking from the ship after all these years makes it all very real.
With the older two, not as much anymore, but usually once or twice in the school hols. With the youngest, about once a month...
Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery do excellent tours on Saturdays at 2.30 for people new to it all to tell you the story behind the art and artists, so fairly regularly...


Really depends on what exhibitions are on and if they interest me or not.
Not often enough.

I don'tlike to go to the museum.
Whenever I visit a new city
We visit as often as possible. I've always loved museums and my husband and kids do too. I can't think of a favorite though! We've been to many great ones.
As often as displays on that interest me, probably twice yearly.
Animal, preferably Dinosaurs!

The British Museum is really excellent, but the best to me was the Cairo Museum!
I Love museums/art galleries! On our 2 cruises around Australia, we’ve visited the N.T.museum, in Fanny Bay, the Adelaide art gallery & the museum next door, the Perth art gallery, having caught a train up from Fremantle, where the ship docked. We also tried to visit the Newcastle art gallery & then the Maritime Museum, but both were closed, due it it being a Monday. When we’re visiting any port, the 1st thing I do, is to look for an art gallery/museum. We visit Melbourne about 4/6 times a year usually, so we visit The Potter’s Gallery & the MCA down there, & also another gallery.

Once we flew to Q’ld, for the day, to view an exhibition, at the Q’ld gallery. We live in south Sydney, so we’re often at the Hazelhurst art gallery,) The AGNSW, the MCA, S.H.Erving gallery, 1 in Paddington, another in Surry Hills.

While O/S: 2 in Madrid, & a couple in 2 other cities we visited in Spain. 2 or 3 in Paris, with the Louvre about 8 times, over 5 trips to Paris. In 1968 I had a day visit in Tahiti, where I visited the Paul Gauguin museum, In Mexico City I visited a museum, then a couple in NYC as we passed through to the UK. In ’04 I visited the Pearl Harbour Museum in Hawaii, & also visited a museum in San Diego. I guess I love museums & art galleries so much is because my grand-father, my father, & his sister were all artists, & my father’s brother-in-law was a sculpture.
I love museums but I don't get much time to visit them.Such a busy life.
I used to visit the museum on the school holidays, as they always have some activities for the kids, now I don't go as my son is 16.
