Children’s Museum

The new Children’s Museum exhibition, Animals: Between Real and Imaginary, focuses on the representation of animals in all periods of art history and across eras and regions. Children and their parents will be introduced to the variety of materials and techniques used by artists to represent both real and imaginary animals.

Running alongside the latest children’s exhibition will be Animal Footprints. Every Thursday and Saturday at 4pm from 6 September 2018 until 30 June 2019, children will be able to follow the footprints of the animals and discover the meaning and representation of animals in art.
