Families Desk, Great Court

The Families Desk is currently closed so we are unable to offer stamps at the end. 

Our Museum explorer trails take you on a fascinating journey of exploration and discovery around the Museum.

On the way you'll track down amazing treasures and see intriguing objects from human history. There'll be objects to find, questions to answer and ideas to discuss.

Remember to download and print the ancient Greece and colour and shape explorer trails at home. You'll be able to bring them in and complete in your own time, following the new one-way route.

You can also download the other trails and explore the collection at home using our Virtual tours.

Paper copies of the explorer trails are not being distributed at the Museum at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
