The free bee bags and explorer bags, interactives and the World Cultures family area gallery are always available and always popular with children. On the Tuesday there will also be an opportunity to handle genuine objects from the Second World War and from Tuesday to Thursday there are special activities.

These Little Explorer classes run from 10.30 to 11.30am and are organised by The Creation Station. They cost £5 per child (£2.50 for siblings), E

On Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 May, families with children can use the techniques favoured by Benedict Rubbra in the current Eye to Image exhibition to create their own artworks. A three-dimensional work is first created. This is then illuminated using a torches and coloured lights and used to inspire a painting.

The drop-in activity costs £2.50 per child and runs from 10.30am to 12.30pm and 1.30 to 3.30pm. Tickets can be purchased on the day at the Garden reception. Adults are expected to stay with their children while they participate and must remain with them if they are under 8 years of age.
