This interactive gallery tour introduces children to museums and their contents. Each child on the tour will be given a copy of Mary's new book, Take Me To Museums. As they visit the galleries and complete activity pages, the group will think about museum collections, the way art is displayed and all the fun that can be had in a museum.
Take Me To Museums is filled with activities that will guide children around any museum or gallery, anywhere in the world. It also serves as a fantastic record of every trip and is a must-have accompaniment to every museum or gallery visit. A copy of Take Me To Museums is included in the ticket price.
This event is suitable for children aged 7-12.
