Why not borrow one of our brilliant backpacks while you explore our galleries?

Suitable for children aged 4 and under, the backpacks are free to borrow and contain items to dress up in, pictures to colour, a trail to follow and things like binoculars and magnifying glasses which all help to make your visit even more fun!

Backpacks do not need to be booked, they are issued at Reception on a first come-first served basis with the last pack of the day being issued an hour before closing.
