Kid’s Lunchboxes

Children (and parents/carers) loved the new Kid’s lunchboxes over the summer so we’re bringing them back for October Half-term. Children will be able to pick and mix from a selection of items to make up their very own lunch box. Choose and purchase from our museum café, there are also paninis and light snacks, hot and cold drinks plus ice creams available to buy.


Make a day of it and visit our Galleries plus why not visit the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery too!

There are 2 ticket options either our Discover Pass or our Explorer Pass.

A Discover Pass gives you access to the exhibition and all the rest of the Museum including our NEW galleries!
