Baby changing and prams

There are baby changing facilities on levels 1, 3 and 4.

Prams can be stored in the cloakroom near the main entrance. Please ask a member of staff for assistance.

Eating areas

There is a children's selection available in both cafés. You can see the sample menus on our shopping and eating page|. Café staff are happy to warm bottles. There are highchairs available on request.

World Museum over looks St Johns Gardens, so there is plenty of space for running around and a picnic. There is also a picnic room on level 4 of the museum. The learning base (ground floor) is also used during busy periods.

There is a shop near the main entrance which sells pocket money gifts specifically for children.
