Children in gallery

Come and visit us this October half term and see our two new exhibitions: Degas: a passion for perfection, and Codebreakers and Groundbreakers (from 24 Oct).

Throughout half term visiting families can borrow drawing materials to sketch in the galleries or an activity kit from our reception desks: the Baby Play Mat for ages 0-2, Story Starters for ages 2-6 and Fitz Kits for ages 5-12.

New self-led guides for teens are also now available.  Each guide comes with the loan of a drawing kit, so you can find new interesting works of art, sketch in the galleries, and come up with ideas for artworks in your ‘studio’ at home.

Visitors of all ages are invited to join a one hour guided tour of the Museum every Saturday. Relax to music at our Sunday lunchtime concerts with music for piano (22 Oct) and music for clarinet and strings (29 Oct).

We hope you enjoy visiting the Museum this October half term. Don’t forget that our shop and café will also be open during opening hours.
