‘Museum of Me’ Themed Days; Monday 14th or Tuesday 15th February 2022. (these are repeat days)

 

The day starts at 9am with children being signed in, and ends at 3.30pm with parents/guardians arriving at 3pm for children to share what they have learned and made, and receive a special museum certificate.

£30.00 per child (per day). Numbers are strictly limited, so early booking is advised.

Regrettably, some spaces in the museum are inaccessible to those less able.

Arts Awards are a great opportunity for children and young people to learn more about the arts and artists, and to try out different artforms. Arts Awards are moderated by Trinity College London. The Learning Team are trained to assess the Discover Arts Award and once the day is complete they will send off for your official Discover Arts Award Certificate from Trinity (please note this can take 6-8 weeks to arrive). Once received they will contact you to either collect or have it posted to you.
