Under 5s

Even our youngest visitors are provided for. Under 5s can make use of our Explorer resources, which help them explore the museum and gallery exhibitions, objects and spaces. Why not take up the '5 Things to Discover' challenge – 5 things to find or do at each museum. There are also regular events just for the under 5s at the Treasure House and Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
