Children & Families
Fun, safe and inspiring for all your family members
Surrey museums are fun, safe spaces for families to share time together. Children can learn new skills, connect with others and explore a different environment. As well as great programmes, museums aim to make visiting easy and enjoyable for all your family. There are wheelchair and pushchair accessible spaces, cafes, picnic areas, baby changing rooms and toilets galore. Some museums also open at quiet times.
Variety all year round
You’ll never be short of new things to see and do in Surrey museums and galleries. Each one has its own busy programme all year round meaning you can enjoy arts & craft activities each weekend and holiday, along with family events, exhibitions, talks, tours, trails, re-enactments and plenty of hands-on creative workshops. If you Home Educate, please see our page under useful links.
Variety for all ages
From under 5s to over 16s, keep all your little ones (and bigger ones) busy. There is storytelling, treasure hunts, make and do activities and museum clubs. There are regular meetings of budding archaeologists, arts & craft workshops and young curators, artists and exhibition groups. You’ll find supporters of national programmes too such as Kids in Museums and Arts Award.
