There is always something for families to enjoy together at Derby Museums. We ensure that our events and activities are suitable for the whole family, with creative opportunities to learn together and create memorable experiences in the museum and at home.

Try our weekly Tots Make and Do session at the Museum & Art Gallery for under 5s and their grown-ups, or take the opportunity to handle real objects from the collection in Handling History, and don’t miss our full programme of online and museum based holiday activities on offer when schools are closed. Visit our What’s On page for the latest opportunities to get involved and visit our Play and Learn page on the Derby Museums from Home  website to explore activities and resources that you can do any time.

Brand new Museum of Making Family activities are coming soon with the opportunity for families and children to make, think and play inspired by our amazing collections of making.

Derby Museums supports and responds to the Kids in Museums manifesto, a set of guidelines for museums, created with children, young people and families, ensuring that Derby Museums is a great place to visit. You can find out more about Kids in Museums here:
