Children crafting

On the first Saturday of every month, drawing materials, activities and themed trails are available from the Courtyard Entrance. And a variety of free resources, including drawing materials, are available to pick up here 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 5-10 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.

In addition to our family activities, you can enjoy our new exhibition Designer’s & Jewellery 1850 – 1940: Jewellery & Metalwork from The Fitzwilliam Museum, opening on 31 July. Continuing exhibitions include Floral Fantasies, Sampled Lives: Samplers form The Fitzwilliam Museum and Designed to Impress. With more free displays listed on the Current Exhibitions & Displays page of our website.

We hope you enjoy visiting the Museum this Summer.
