East Riding Museums offers a warm welcome to children and their adults, with opportunities to engage with our collections, exhibitions and local heritage.
There is plenty for children to enjoy at every museum, including searching for their favourite objects, taking part in the '5 Things to Discover' challenge, and more.
All our children's activities can count towards your Creative Families Award. Find out more on the learning page.
Even our youngest visitors are provided for. Under 5s can take up the '5 Things to Discover' challenge - 5 things to find or do at each museum. Why not try mooing like a cow, pretending to be a deep sea diver, finding a silver aeroplane, meeting the wheelwright, or walking like a penguin during your visit! Ask when you arrive at any museum to find out more.
'Tiny Treasures' sessions at the Treasure House explore museum and art themes such as shape and colour, building, archaeology and more.
All our Under 5s activities can count towards your Creative Families Award. Find out more on the learning page.
Mothers are welcome to breastfeed their children anywhere on site at any East Riding Museum. Staff can arrange a discrete space if requested.

Here are their beautiful creations! Which is your favourite?
