The museums in Canterbury are really interesting, but there's a lack of things that you can do with a toddler. The museums are more suitable for age three up. I think it's important to encourage an in...terest in museums from a very young age and the only way to do that would be to provide activities for all age groups. Many other cities around the country have museums with suitable parts for toddlers to help them explore the world we live in. Considering that Canterbury has a heritage for rupert bear and bagpuss there could be a play bit based on those characters I know that many people would even pay to get in if it was built. Look at how well The World of Beatrix Potter does and that's like a museum but it appeals to children!! See More
