Rocket backpack

Until 31 December 2016

Explore the Tate Liverpool galleries with a fun rocket backpack. Blast off and discover a whole galaxy of art with this free in-gallery resource.

Discover a galaxy of art with our brand new rocket backpack!

Designed to help young children and their adults explore our collection display Constellations together, our backpack provides a number of arty activities. Become an explorer and play a spot game around the building using our specially designed prompt cards, look through fabulous view finders and investigate every gallery corner using torches!

Artist Denise Wright, who is based at Kensington Children Centre, worked with children and their families to help us develop this self directed resource for early years visitors.

There are currently 6 identical backpacks which are available to use, each containing a magnifying glass; shiny silver paper; a story book; binoculars, viewfinders; a floor plan and a matching picture card game.

So if you’re visiting Tate Liverpool, grab a backpack and blast off into the exciting world of art. We hope you enjoy using it!
