Let St John’s Gate capture your imagination

The Museum galleries are open for you to explore from 10am to 5pm Wednesday – Saturday.

During school holidays, we offer an exciting programme of free family activities including hands-on making and storytelling inspired by the Museum’s collections. Our regular Seacole Sessions are sensory-friendly workshops designed to support autistic and neuro-diverse families.  To find out more about our craft activities and storytelling and to book your free space, please see the Museum’s Eventbrite Page.

In term-time we run free monthly workshops for Under 5’s in partnership with Artburst where you can join us for crafting, storytelling singing and dancing. These take place on the second Wednesday of each month. To find out more about our free family programme and to book your space, please visit the Museum’s Eventbrite Page.

Toilets and baby-changing facilities are available on site. We aim to make our museum and family activities accessible to everyone, but if you have any questions please contact us: museum@sja.org.uk / 020 7324 4005

We look forward to seeing you soon!
