    About

    Welcome to our brand new interactive gallery and play space for kids under five.

    Children will take an imaginative journey from the 'sandy seashore' to 'under the sea' with free-play games, activities and displays specially designed to stimulate their growing minds and inspire their curiosity.

    Created to meet the needs of our youngest learners, it’s an exciting new addition to the museum’s offering for families and young children. Kids and carers alike will enjoy a mix of modern equipment and toys (as well as timeless favourites!) that help develop literacy, numeracy, spatial awareness, and movement skills.

    So bring your Mini Mariners into the museum for fun AND learning.
