For Families


Pick up one of our free family trails to help you explore our galleries and get more out of your visit. There are also special seasonal trails during the school holidays to look out for. Trails can be picked up from the Vestibule desk (adjacent to the Round Room).


We have a variety of drop-in family activities throughout the weekends and Birmingham school holidays. See What's On  for details.
