Family Friendly Museum Award

April and May 2018


ALT=""This year, for the first time ever, The Museum of the Order of St John will be entering the Kids in Museum’s Family Friendly Museum Award, and we need your help.

We are very proud of our free family programme, and we hope you will agree it is worth celebrating. We invite families visiting St John’s Gate to take one of our free Museum trails, have a go at an activity sheet, or get hands-on with the activity buckets in our galleries. Our free storytelling sessions and craft workshops, which are run every school holiday, offer opportunities for families to get creative, learn and have fun together in a safe and friendly environment.
