Discovery Box for Families

The Discovery Box is a self-directed resource for children of all ages and their adults to encourage engagement with the artwork in the gallery. 
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.
