Kidspace, the mini museum for under 5s to explore the natural world, can be booked for pre-school excursions.

As part of your preschool booking Kidspace is available for up to 20 students to enjoy for an hour (please note the space is shared with general public). 

 During the session under 5s can actively explore the five 'pods':

  • bug pod
  • marine pod
  • volcano pod
  • observation pod
  • imagination pod
     

They can touch real animal skins, fossils, rocks and animal specimens including embedded insects. They can enjoy wall puzzles, make crazy mixed-up animals and peek out of the observation pod for wildlife spotting. The pods are big enough for adults to join in the fun too.

Pre-school groups can book a one-hour session in Kidspace on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays from 10-11am or 12-1pm. Please note that Kidspace is not available on Thursdays or Fridays for group bookings.
