What's On

From family STEAM learning to interactive exhibitions. There's something for everyone.

Make & Play Engineers – The Future Is… Play

Create your own museum playground! Use real tools to build carts, electronics, dens and explore wheels and coding.

Two girls with ponytails, blazers and and matching rainbow coloured headbands are working with tools at a table. Both are wearing protective gloves and the girl on the left is wearing safety goggles. Behind her, a man helps her with some of the objects on the table.

Designed for all.

Join us in this family session to open-endedly play and, inevitably, learn. Use real tools in our workshop, OR construct with our big and small playthings AND be prepared for cart-making, basic electronics, den-construction, wheel-exploration, coding, and PLAY over the course of the summer – all to support you in creating your museum playground.  

Entry to the museum is included in the price of your ticket, so there are no hidden costs if you wish to explore on the day!
