Hannah had a lovely time with her friend 'S' from The Gallivanters, probably the most fun she has ever had at Milestones - it's amazing the difference it makes having a friend to see it all with!
The lego creatures were really good, and each one had a big information sheet alongside it. There was a lego spotters trail to complete, and the children all made their own lego mini figures to take home as well.
(Please excuse the picture quality, the displays were all very brightly lit)
Once we were all legoed out we went around again exploring the historical aspects of the museum. Hannah learned about life from the 1930's through to 1980's - all set out in real life scenes.
