Family Challenge Days

Special Family Competitive Activity Days

What's On

Enjoy a challenge as a family! Take the challenge to ignite your ingenuity and gear up your grey cells whilst having fun and learning! These days are for small family groups to compete for prizes on activities that are based on a theme such as science, history, transport, engineering, archaeology or art related to the museum and its subjects. Bring a group to London Canal Museum and have a go at building bridges, floating boats and other brain-teasing activities. Collect points and win prizes! Your group should have 3-6 people, including one or two adults and at least 1 child under 10.
