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.

We also run an after-school art club for children aged 7-11. The Chiltern Club of Arts Juniors runs in term-time and students will have a chance to learn about different types of art, local artists, and to try their hand at different art styles. Throughout the half-term students will work towards the Arts Award; a nationally recognised initiative from Arts Council England.

Our club is now full for this term, but please contact to be put on our waiting list or for more details.

Supported with investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Artswork, the South East Bridge.
