Now that we are almost half way through the year, I have been tidying up my photo archives from the past six months, and came across some pics that reminded me of a fantastic ‘kids in museums’ programme I’ve been meaning to tell you about.

This time last year I had the idea that, as a challenge for the year, I would try to visit 52 museums in 52 weeks.
