The museum’s education team work closely with families and children to provide balanced workshops throughout the normal school holiday periods and on some weekends. These are advertised on the ‘What’s On’ section of the website and are usually craft based activities suitable for a range of ages.

The museum’s H2O gallery on the upper floor has been set up with children in mind containing lots of hands-on activities. Situated in main corridor is an ‘art cart’ of free arts and crafts materials for children to create their own artwork at any time during museum opening hours. Check out the museum’s current exhibitions on the ‘What’s On’ section as we often have child oriented themes.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult during workshop activities and also for general entry into the museum. This is for your child’s safety as well as the safety and comfort of other visitors and the museum collections on display.

Please note that parent and adult supervisors are expected to have control of children in their care at all times.
