‘Terrific idea. Loved the way it got the kids out into the Museum and to use their imagination – loads of it!'
Parent after Imagination Station activity

‘We had a fun time going through the Museum, especially the glass exhibition which gave us a lot of ideas. My son really enjoyed making his artwork afterwards. Brilliant.’

The Imagination Station is all about creativity and ideas. Visit to have fun exploring the Museum and let your imagination run wild. Activities are devised with artists and facilitated by our expert family friendly team. Activities are often inspired by current exhibitions and displays to enhance a visit to the Museum. The Imagination Station is a free and drop-in activity available during school holidays from 10.30 - 17.00. Activities are for all ages with specific ideas for under 5s. Pick up the activity of the day with materials from our team at the Imagination Station and then zoom around the Museum to get inspiration before drawing or making your idea.
