Regular Events and Activities for Kids!

Are you a parent or carer? If so we have plenty of regular events and activities that might interest you and many of them are free! We offer drop in themed craft sessions in holiday periods, at weekends and on Friday afternoons and promote these on our social media accounts. We also have regular scavenger hunts and storytelling on top of the numerous activities such as themed games and colouring in offered throughout our exhibitions. These activities are generally suitable for primary school-aged children and their accompanying adults.
