About

Beaney House of Art and Knowledge
Recently refurbished with cutting edge exhibition galleries, a new library and a whole new programme of family oriented interactive events for you all to get stuck into! More fun than ever before, and some of the kids' sessions on offer include: Baby Bounce and Rhyme; Saturday Story Time; Drop In Art Activities; seasonal Arts and Crafts variations plus their annual Children's Festival in May!
Even when there's nothing special on however there's plenty to see and do, including a self guided (well technically you're guided by the Little Girl At The Door!) family trail investigating the portraits throughout the People and Places gallery.

Plus there's a Treasure Map trail in the Explorers' and Collectors' gallery too!
There are loads of permanent galleries to explore so everyone's bound to find something they're interested in, with the Colour and Camouflage exhibition being particularly appealing to children, offering as it does a rainbow spectrum of wildlife's natural shading, whether for sneaking or for standing out! There are temporary exhibits regularly changed around too, so repeat visits are generally just as much fun!
The Beaney also offers some fantastic children's party options within a range of themes, including Farmyard Friends (for over 2s), Artist For A Day (over 5s), Awesome Explorers (over 5s), and Curse of the Pharaoh (over 5s)! Each theme comes with it's own special adventure through the galleries, and each contain interactive, individual and teamwork elements, usually with something produced to take home, too.
