Join us at the weekends for FREE volunteer-led family gallery tours.

Listen to stories and hunt for history while you explore the galleries. There will be craft activities and you can take home your creations. The family gallery tours will last around one hour. Tours include our Ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece galleries.


During school holidays, family tours are limited to 15 families. Places are first come, first served.

Please visit the Welcome Desk to sign up.
