For Families

Trails

Pick up one of our free family trails to help you explore our galleries and get more out of your visit. Choose from Animals in Art or the Hidden Engines trail. There are also special seasonal trails during the school holidays to look out for. Trails can be picked up from the Vestibule desk (adjacent to the Round Room).

Events

We have a variety of drop-in family activities throughout the weekends and Birmingham school holidays. See What's On  for details.

Family Packs

Borrow one of our Staffordshire Hoard activity packs from the Vestibule desk and explore the Staffordshire Hoard with a storybook, jigsaw and other interactive activities (small deposit required).
