Early Years Activities

From story time and imaginative play to Makaton-friendly adventures and curious moments, there's lots to inspire and entertain little learners on a visit to the Science and Industry Museum.

Discover inspiring new sights and sounds in our permanent galleries and displays. Head to ExperiDen, in our interactive gallery Experiment, to play and explore with building blocks, a pegboard, and sensory activities specially designed for our youngest visitors.  

Build a textiles tower, weave colourful materials or spin your body like a bobbin in Textiles City, an interactive play space in the Textiles Gallery
