MUSEUM bosses have landed a £200,000 windfall to help encourage more families in East London to visit.

The four-year Families Explorer programme can now get under way at Bethnal Green's V&A Museum of Childhood-thanks to the cash from the Big Lottery Fund.

The museum hopes to encourage families in Tower Hamlets and neighbouring Newham and Hackney to take part who would not usually think of visiting the centre or don't have the means to.

Activities at the museum in Cambridge Heath Road will include painting, drawing, storytelling music and drama on a theme linked to the collections or exhibitions, which in the past have included Space, puppets and Picasso.
