These sessions provide an opportunity for our youngest visitors to engage with our collections in a way that is meaningful to them, is hands-on, appeals to their imaginations and above all else is fun.

Each child will receive a sealed, plastic box containing freshly cleaned sensory resources which helps to keep them engaged for the duration of the session; adds context by using a physical object to give words meaning; extends learning through play and increases their opportunities to develop good listening and language skills.

Sessions take place in different galleries each week, simply ask at reception when you arrive to find out what space we will be in so your little ones can experience our collections through play.

Booking in advance is essential to ensure we remain within our safe capacity to allow for social distancing.
