I Wonder

Our creative and fun 'I Wonder' sessions are perfect for children aged six months to four years and their parents/guardians/carers.

As well as our busy programme of family activities, we run these special sessions for families with children under 5 years old to help our youngest visitors have fun with our collections and exhibitions. Join us at The Box to discover something new each week and explore through singing, dancing, making, play and stories.

I Wonder runs in six-week blocks each term. The sessions familiarise young children with The Box, introduce them to our artworks and objects, and encourage them to make their own creations to take home.
