Calling all Young Explorers – bring your parents, carers or grandparents for a fun morning! See how a different museum object and a different gallery can be explored through story, rhythm, rhyme and craft. Young Explorers is great for developing early literacy skills, social skills, creativity and enquiry.

Join us every first Thursday of each month during school term time for a special Young Explorers toddler session, from 10am–11.30am and 1pm-2.30pm. £3 per participating child (2-5 years).
