Family Galleries

What do an oak tree, building a fantasy landscape and getting a robot to spell out your name have in common? You can explore all of these (and more) in our interactive galleries, including the newly transformed Adventure Planet!

Filled with activities and spaces for reflection, stories and experimentation, our family friendly galleries have something for everyone.
