Family learning

Explore, Discover, Make!

'I brought my 6-year-old daughter and my 71-year-old mother with me at half term and they both loved it! Thought the children's pack was excellent.'

There is something for every member of the family at Watts Gallery - Artists' Village. Explore with exciting free trails and tactile resources, discover more on guided tour and make all kinds of arts and crafts at one of our artist-led workshops. Come along to the Make Space every Sunday for our family drop in craft workshop (included with admission) and join us seasonally for Museums at Night.

Free family trails and resources

Explore the Artists' Village as a family with one of our self-guided family trails. All trails are free with adult admission.

'We went with our two grandsons, 5 and 2. The little bag with '5 Things for Under 5s' was inspired!'
