Family Activities & Events

Whether you have a passion for films, gaming, photography or TV, there's lots on for families every weekend and throughout the school holidays. Most of our events are free drop-in sessions, but you may need to book in advance.

  • YO-KAI WATCH Half Term Take Over

    Saturday 18 – Sunday 26 February

    Join us for a host of FREE family activities and events inspired by YO-KAI WATCH. Play the game in our Nintendo 3DS gaming area, befriend Yo-kai, watch experiments and demonstrations and take part in creative activities.

  • Early Birds

    Saturday 25 February

    Early Birds is our special early-morning event for families with children who have an Autism Spectrum Condition, anxiety disorder, or Special Educational Need that means they would benefit from a quieter, more relaxed museum opening. Explore and enjoy the museum's galleries in a calm environment, before they're open to the general public. There will also be a special Christmas film screening and free activities.
