Early Years Programs

Our Early Years programs are suitable for those aged under 5 and their adults to enjoy the Museum together.

We have a variety of experiences for you and your little ones, with something available every day of the week. Look out for our bookable, educator-led experiences at Little Learners, or drop in for some object handling at Discovery Time. Maybe you’d prefer to relax and listen to a good book during our Story Time sessions.

We also provide experiences for adults with children under 5 during exhibitions, so keep an eye out for our Early Years friendly programs. They are a fantastic way to discover our exciting temporary exhibitions.
