'Fill your senses with sound'

Come and join our new season of toddler-friendly, hands-on events, designed to explore our collections through all the senses.

Our presenter will play the harpsichord and take you on an interactive exploration of instruments in Gallery 44.

This is followed by musical craft creation and sensory exploration in the Learning studio.

Accompanying older children and adults can also learn about music, art and archaeology through their sense. There will be things to take home too...
