Regular activity sessions for families

Families can delve deeper into Museums Sheffield's fascinating collections through our packed programme of activities and free family trails at every site.


We have lots of special creative activities and events for families each month and especially during school holidays. You can find out what's coming up in our special events calendar here.


We also have regular activities and family trails which are available every week, so there should always be something for families to do together when they visit. These are listed below.
