Early Years week, 10 – 13 May 2016
Time for little ones to take over the museum! We reserve this week for our youngest visitors to have the museum all to themselves with no Primary school bookings taken. As well as our brand new Early Years workshop “Splash!” there will be lots of drop-in activities both inside and outside the museum exploring the wonder of water! Plus the little ones can explore our galleries without bumping into any bigger kids.
Feedback for our School workshops:
“Had a fantastic time! Well organised and looked after!”
“Reach for the Stars was perfect for the age of our children & it has fuelled the children’s enthusiasm for doing a space topic. We have done a 3 week mini topic which has come out of our visit.”
“The ‘Nature’s stage’ show was really engaging and the whole class (+staff!) enjoyed it. Great outdoor area too.”
