Join us for a lively activity session that everyone can take part in! There is something different to do every week, from handling museum objects to getting creative with a colourful craft activity. There’s no need to book, just drop in.

While you’re visiting, follow a trail around the displays, try on some medieval hats or sport some colourful racing silks and ride a Georgian rocking horse.
