Making way for children under 5 in Museums

Tot’s Time at North Lincolnshire Museum

We love our family visitors and lots of families who visit us have young children under the age of 5.

Over the next few years we are taking part in an exciting project together with Hull and East Riding Museums to focus on children under 5 and improve the North Lincolnshire Museum and Normanby Hall Country Park for families visiting with young children.

Over the past few months we have been busy visiting and about learning from other museums who work with under 5s. We have also held consultation with visitors and local families about how we can best provide for them.

We are working to make sure that our facilities and displays cater for families and have been training our staff to work with young children. We aim for our venues to be friendly, fun and interactive places for families to explore and discover new things together.

We are also planning lots of new resources, activities, sessions and events to help families get the most out of a visit.

Watch this space for more news about fun for under 5s!
