Richmond Museums and Educational Places

Richmond upon Thames has quite a few museums and places of educational interest - such as the London Wetland Centre in Barnes.  Although the Wetland Centre probably isn't the best place to go in Richmond on a rainy day, the other museum certainly are! 

And if you're looking for other things to do in Richmond - don't forget to take a look at our pages on Historic Houses, Richmond Park and the River Thames.

The Museums

Wetland CentreThe award winning London Wetland Centre is the first project of its kind in the world.  Many opportunities for kids to get involved and spot birds, creepy crawlies, snails and fish!
