Early Years Studio

Join our popular weekly drop-in sessions from 10.30am – 2pm each Wednesday.
These play-based sessions are designed especially for parents, grandparents & carers to enjoy time with their littles ones (age 12 months – 5 years).
Our safe space and Early Years Team provide everything you need to allow your child to lead you on a multi-sensory journey of play.

Please be aware that if our capacity number of 20 children is reached there may be a small wait. The museum is free, and our Bar & Kitchen is open from 10am.
We ask for a ratio of one adult per 2 children due to the play-based nature of each session.

Sessions start again on 10th January and run every Wednesday in term time only.

£5 a session, per child, pay on the day
Siblings under 12 months are free, we have a baby area each week.
