Early Years

The Museum is a fantastic place to bring your Early Years class on a visit. Children are encouraged to listen, understand and interact with the our experienced learning team during our fun and interactive shows. Plus with time to explore the Museum, there is lots to do, learn and discover together.

Early Years visits take place 10:00-13:00 or 11:00-14:00 and cost £220 per class. Your visit includes an interactive show and guided exploration of the Museum, as well as time to explore the Waterworks Gallery and Splash Zone. As we are a small museum, we are only able to accommodate a maximum of 60 pupils per day.
