This Christmas we have the below four exhibitions, and a variety of displays, on show for you to enjoy:

Feast & Fast: The Art of Food in Europe 1500 – 1800

Seeing Sound: Music, imagery and inspiration

Rembrandt and the Nude

Inspire: A celebration of children’s art in response to Jacopo del Sellaio’s Cupid and Psyche

Fans Unfolded: Conserving the Lennox-Boyd collection

And don’t forget to visit Gallery 3 – our grandest gallery reopened in October following an extensive two-year refurbishment.

Make good use of our selection of free resources, including drawing materials, available to pick up at any time too. Those with babies (0-2 years) can pick up a play mat containing carefully selected resources that connect with themes and objects in the collection. Little ones (2-6 years) can benefit from our Story Starter satchels containing a picture book and activities to explore the galleries. Whilst those with 5-12 year olds can complete games and puzzles to journey around the museum with one of our Fitz Kits, or choose from a selection of themed Gallery trails. Visit the Families page of our website for more information.

And join us for our Family First Saturday on 7 December (14.00 – 16.00) for activities and art-making on the theme of ‘Festive fun.’

Our shop will be open for you to browse and buy - favourites this season include a range of unique ornaments, decorations, and glassware, as well as sumptuous scarves, beautiful new jewellery, Christmas cards, stocking fillers, games and puzzles for all ages. And don’t forget our custom print site for a truly memorable gift. Plus, seasonal treats will be available in the café, including mince pies and hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows.
