The Kids’ Zone is an interactive play area with forest and arctic themed climbing frames for kids to scale, slide and run through.
The Kids’ Zone explores aspects of army life from camping to clothing. It includes dedicated soft-play space for babies, plus arts and crafts, dressing-up costumes, books, interactive toys and panels.
The Museum canvassed and incorporated the innovative ideas and suggestions of parents, carers and our youngest users, to create an exciting space for kids aged 0-8 to learn, explore and play in a historically inspired, colourful environment.
At the heart of the Kids’ Zone are the six key principles of Early Years Foundation Stages, ensuring that children are learning whilst having fun.
There are fascinating objects from the Museum’s Collection on display inside, with interactive models for children to touch and explore. The space allows kids to move, interact and create in a bright and safe environment.
Please take the time to read our Kids' Zone Rules which apply to all users of the Kids' Zone, including birthday parties.
The Kids' Zone is open daily from 10.10am to 5.15pm. There are six, one-hour sessions per day. All sessions are ticketed to ensure children have room to run, draw and play freely.
You can book your tickets online up to eight days in advance. You can also check our online booking system to see if a session has spaces remaining. Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.
All tickets are available online and only unsold tickets will be available from the Museum's Welcome Desk before each session. Please check availability on our online booking system before making your journey.
