Come along with your little ones for our Toddlers' Takeover Day.

Discover what happens behind the scenes at the museum through a range of games and activities suitable for our little learners.

Each toddler will receive a job checklist of things to do which will take you to stations set up around the museum to explore. These activities will  include:

  • Going on a Gallery patrol
  • Making ‘puffballs’ to pack our museum objects safely
  • Carefully transporting objects
  • Sorting our Museum 'store room' 
  • Sweeping and dusting 
  • Singing and signing 

We would recommend spending 1 hour exploring the different activities at your own pace.
