Activities

The museum is packed with interactive activities for children. Each time zone in the museum has a box containing period specific toys and books, hats to try on and a multimedia tablet quiz. In the 1580s room children can also lay the table, write at the desk and dress up as the master and mistress of the house. There are puzzles in the 1960s zone and in our education space there are always craft activities for families to complete.

There is also a varied programme of activities for families, catering for children of all different ages.

Art Club

We run a termly after-school art club for children aged 7-11. There is a different theme each term. This year we have covered printing, portraiture and life drawing, and perspective. In autumn 2019 our theme is Expressionism. At the end of each term there is a celebration of the children’s work, which the parents are invited to. We also make sure that the children meet a practising artist each term and ideally visit them in their studio.

There are two classes on a Thursday, one at 3.45pm and one at 5pm. Each class is 1 hour 15 minutes. From September 2019 fees are £65 per term. Children can come along for a FREE trial session.

The children work towards an Arts Award (Discover and Explore), a nationally recognised initiative: https://www.artsaward.org.uk/site/?id=64

If you would like your child to come for a free trial or sign up to the club please click on this link and complete the application form.
