Learn > Families


Families are welcome at both the Heritage Centre and Charlton House, where a range of activities is available throughout the year

Children's trails (free)

Many of the exhibitions at the Heritage Centre include free children’s activities. Pop in today to see what’s on offer!

Please note parents and/or carers are responsible for supervising their children at all times.

Museum Makes (free)

Museum Makes is a drop-in art club for children and their families. It takes place most Saturdays from 10.30am-12.00pm at the Heritage Centre.

Activities and materials are suitable for ages four and over but younger children are welcome to join in with the help of their families. No need to book – just drop in!  

Please note that parents and/or carers are responsible for supervising their children at all times. 

Please note that there will be no session on Saturday 10th February as we will be at Charlton House for the London Children’s Book Swap. Why not join us there?

Holiday Histories

We offer activities throughout the year, including school holidays and seasonal specials. For more information check our Holiday History and What’s On sections.


  • What a great idea! Very inspirational and imaginative for young minds and we adults enjoyed it all too.

  • Very imaginative – leads to children and adult dialogue about wishes and dreams. Thank you.

  • I really enjoyed myself today, I wish I could do it again!
