Museum Playtime is all about sharing some quality time with the special little person in your life. Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, the Discovery Zone will be filled with items that are safe and inviting for tiny fingers and inquiring minds.

Objects to explore will include materials from nature, blocks and boxes, dolls and puppets and some special treasures linked to our Museum collection. As your child sorts, builds, pretends, makes art or music and creates their own games, they will discover that there are endless options in the way that they play.

Our friendly staff will be there to greet you with lots of ideas on how to enjoy your playtime. Your child might also make some new friends as well.

These hands-on experiences are linked to the Early Years Learning Framework.
