Events & Activities

Family Activities and Workshops

We run regular family activities, crafts and storytimes during school holidays, see below for details on upcoming sessions.
There is usually no need to pre-book, but do check! Even when we don’t have special sessions there’s always plenty to keep little (and not so little) ones entertained at the museum, so if you’re stuck for what to do come along and have fun in our children’s area, playing with the old fashioned games or doing a museum trail.
All workshops are suitable for children 4-10 years. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
There is no need to book. However, due to limited space the sessions operate on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a seat for every child.
