Children's activities

Keep the kids entertained with activities and events, most of which are free.

Kids and parents can have fun with books and activities in the Play Pod in the Courtyard, or enjoy a game of chess.

We also run school holiday programs, tours especially designed to help children explore our collections and sessions where parents can introduce children to reading.

For school group activities, also check our on-demand programs for primary and secondary students.
