Children’s events

A picture of the children's area, with art cart and dressing up clothesIn normal times the museum hosts a programme of events for children of all ages, as well as having a dedicated children’s area with a fab new arts cart, table and chairs, plus dressing up and  weekend workshops.

Unfortunately, due to the current health crisis, we have had to remove our dressing up clothes and arts cart and are unable to run our usual programme of activities and events.

We do have a takeaway children’s activity which is available at the front desk.
