What is there to do?

Bower's Kidseum is a great way for kids to learn about art and culture, whilst having fun! It's also a place where they can get their hands a bit messy - which we love!

Kidseum is an interactive children's museum where kids can enjoy hands-on experiencing in order to learn through play. The Kidseum is primarily focused on pre-school and early elementary, and what better way to bring art and culture into their lives!

Kids - do you like to get a little creative, and maybe a little messy? We thought so! How does face painting sound? At Bower's Kidseum, renowed artists will help you express yourself - literally!

Here, kids can enjoy time decorating - themselves! They can paint their hands, face or arm with designs inspired from all over the work. The artists can explain the designs inspired from various cultures. One design might be Egyptian cheetahs, the next could be fire-breathing dragons!

Kids of all ages are welcome, and it's all part of the museum admission!

Feeling creative still? How about heading to the art studio where kids can create their own masterpiece. Perhaps they want to make a dragon, or their own headdress? The Drop-in Art Studio projects change on a monthly basis, so there will always be something new for you to discover!

Getting creative is a great way for kids to express themselves, so why not head to Bower's Kidseum where they can really get creative!
