Dance with a Venetian Harlequin in the ballrooms of Europe, draw and decorate your own silver trophy, try on a medieval gauntlet or fabulous corset, or challenge yourself to become a master of your craft.

From digital interactives to touch objects and films, there is lots to do, make, try on and find in our galleries.
