|Museum of the Moving Image (MOMI)|
South Bank, SE1
Nearest Tube: Waterloo
Part of the South Bank Arts Centre, this is one of the most popular museums in London, and for good reason...
For a start it is all about TV and film, so most people find it interesting. It is also very well set out which makes it very viewer friendly. Then it encourages a high level of interaction, which kids love. And to top it all off it is also highly educational, so adults like it too!
The museum traces the history of the moving image right from through from early animation techniques and the first cine cameras, to black and white movies and right up to the present day.
Topics covered include censorship, special effects, animation techniques and the technicalities of filmmaking. And when it comes to taking part yourself, you can make your own cartoon, be interviewed by the famous film critic Barry Norman, or even fly over London like Superman.
The Museum of the Moving Image is open from 10am-6pm daily. Admission costs around £6 for adults.
