You don’t need to be an expert to look at or talk about art. Don’t feel you have to ‘get it’ to enjoy it – take whatever you like from a piece. Arm yourself with a Collection Case to explore Materials and Objects display.

10. Have fun
On your visit try one of these activities in the galleries.
Strike a pose
Get someone to secretly choose an artwork. Once they have looked carefully at the artwork, find a space in the room and try to recreate that artwork using their body. The rest of the group can then try and spot the artwork the pose was inspired by.
Give us a clue
One person should find a portrait in the gallery that reminds them of someone famous or someone you all know (perhaps a neighbour or a friend). With the help of clues, the rest of the group can guess the chosen person.
