Indoor exhibitions and winter activities around Barnes

Have you turned your sunshades into giant umbrellas in order to enjoy your garden a bit more despite the rain and the cold?

The Barbican Art Gallery in the City helps you get back at the rain with its free exhibition called the Rain Room. You will have to wait for about two hours in the queue because only five persons can go into the room at the same time for the best possible experience: see the rain run away from you. Indeed, this new exhibition allows you to walk into a room where rain is falling, and stops as you walk in it, thanks to sensors.

The video is pretty impressive and well worth a look.

The exhibition stops on 3rd March 2013 so you still have time to go and get back at the rain!

While you are out and about you might want to have a look at the 100 amazing photographs exhibited at the National History Museum in South Kensington. No risk of getting wet this time, all you risk is to be flabbergasted by the beauty of wildlife. The Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year is also open until 3rd March and costs £10 per adult and £5 for children and concessions. Family tickets cost £27 for 2 adults and 3 children and Members, Patrons and children aged 3 or under go free.

After the exhibition you can also enjoy the Museum’s gigantic open-air ice rink that has just opened for the Christmas season. This 950 square-meter (!!) ice-rink will be open until 6th January. You can even book tickets in advance as it may be a bit crowded. There is even a 100 square-meter ice rink just for children, with penguins to help them avoid falls.

After this exhibition if you want to take care of you own regional wildlife at home, have a look at our bird feeders and wildlife houses and get surprise visits all year long.

Finally, nature lovers and Christmas aficionados will rejoice at the Garden Museum’s Christmas concert on 14th December. It is advisable to book in advance as seats are limited.
