Age Friendly activities and resources

We have been working hard to develop a series of creative activities and resources you can download and share with a group or work through on your own.

 

We also offer tailored group virtual visits to the Museum, this new programme is open to care homes, and other organisations who work with any age group from community groups to youth organisations and support groups. These events will be tailor-made for the interests and needs of participants, and will give you the chance to pose your curious questions in advance so our team can answer them during the event.
