Discovery Box for Families

The Discovery Box is a self-directed gallery resource for parents and carers to use with their children of all ages in the gallery to encourage engagement with the artwork. 
The Discovery Box is bespoke to each exhibition and contains a series of imaginative tools to employ the creative mind and to investigate the artwork through play and conversation. In participating, it creates a space for people to spend more time with each other exploring the artwork.
