Making your way to the session

Please allow time to make your way to the session, via lift or stairs, as the lifts have a very limited capacity. If you are able to, please park your buggy next to the main entrance on arrival and make your way to the session on foot. This is due to limited space in the gallery. Staff will be happy to guide you to the gallery.

Please remember to maintain respectful social distancing.


If you suspect you have symptoms of coronavirus, we ask that you delay your visit and follow government guidance. Please wear your mask on arrival to the museum and when moving around.

Be aware that this session involves singing.

We will ask families to share some resources, but hand sanitizer will be available at each activity.
