Are you a parent or carer looking for somewhere to take the children? We pride ourselves on being family friendly, in fact we were shortlisted for the Kids in Museums award in 2017!

There are always free gallery trails for children, and many of our galleries include interactive elements, such as feely boxes and dressing up clothes, that give our younger visitors a ‘hands on’ museum experience.

We also hold special family days in school holidays. Don’t miss our Brilliant Bronze Age day on 19th February!
