Whatever your age and area of interest, there is always something happening at the museum which will appeal to you, from workshops for your children to interesting talks focussing on our key collections.

Perhaps you’d like to take the opportunity to peruse an object from the archive under the guidance of museum experts, or are fascinated by the Guinea Pig Club and Archibald McIndoe’s work. Why not come and sample one of our stimulating historical talks? Our yearly activities for children – which take place on Tuesdays during the school holiday periods – may also be of interest. See below for specific details of upcoming events.
