Our learning spaces encourage exploration and creativity. Our suite includes a creative studio workshop space, study space, IT access, cloakroom and accessible toilet.

As the largest Creative Learning space, the Studio is dedicated to the development of 'hands-on' creative activity, providing opportunities for visitors to participate in artist-led workshops and handling sessions. This light, south-facing space can accommodate large school or community groups.

The Study Space houses a unique range of interactive learning resources plus IT and internet access. As an open access drop-in space it allows families to experience different activities linked to our collection.
