Greenwich For Time and Space

We visited Greenwich today with another home ed family. We visited the Time Galleries including GMT. The kids learnt about longitude and latitudes, time and Greenwich mean time. Greenwich has started charging for entry to the time section of the museum which was annoying. However, my friend managed to get us a teachers pass for free by showing her Education Otherwise card.

The Royal Observatory seems to be more interesting for the kids. They have a fantastic hands on Astronomy galleries where you can watch how the universe was formed, touch a 4.5 billion year-old meteorite, guide a space mission and unravel the mysteries of the universe.
