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.
