We offer a range of family-friendly workshops and activities, such as family fun days, arts and crafts sessions and special festival celebrations which promote learning through discovery for all ages.

Children’s Corner

This is a creative area for children which includes art materials and costumes for dressing up. From the robes of a Chinese Emperor to the kimono of a Japanese princess, children can explore East Asian culture through trying on traditional clothing.

Children are encouraged to experience the artefacts up close, with stools and magnifying glasses that are available throughout the galleries.
