What's On

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

Mini Museum Engineers Play Session

We have changed the way we offer our Mini Museum Engineers play days, so everyone is as safe as possible yet as equally relaxed during their play.

Bookable online | £3.28 per child including one accompanying adult

As part of this we have limited the number of families attending our play sessions. These sessions are bookable online to help us keep within our reduced capacity. 

While you will be able to loan a newly developed Mini Museum Engineers trail or Play Box at reception for free, our Mini Museum Engineers sessions will use different playthings for your little ones to explore and experiment with.  

All Mini Museum Engineers play sessions follow general themes that are linked to our collections. We will offer a range of sanitized playthings that will link to the sessions theme and will slightly differ each time. Your little ones can then freely choose from this offer, giving them the opportunity to explore something known or new during your stay. 

Wednesday 4 November - Amazing structures and incredible shelters 

Wednesday 11 November - Playful experiments with ramps and racers 

Wednesday 18 November - The wonderful world of lights, magnets and gears 

Wednesday 25 November - Crazy about runs and tracks 

Wednesday 2 December - Building up tool skills 

Wednesday 9 December - Amazing structures and incredible shelters

What your child will need to bring:  

  • One very supportive grown-up to be with you throughout your engineering adventure. We know from experience that all mums, dads, uncles, aunties, older siblings, grandparents, carers are perfectly qualified for this role as no previous engineering experience is needed. 

What you will get: 

  • A VERY playful introduction to engineering.  
  • Experimental exploration and invention! From experience, we know that lots of weird and wonderful exploring and inventing is happening during our open-ended play sessions. 
  • A safe and relaxed space.   
  • Expertise! Our Learning Team will encourage you throughout. They are experts in playful engineering and will happily offer their support you when needed.
