Family Activities at the V&A
We run an exciting and diverse programme of activities for families at the V&A. We want families to come and explore, enjoy and be inspired by our wonderful collections and spaces. You can pick up a family trail or borrow a back-pack and venture into the galleries where there are also many hands-on exhibits to find and play with. At the weekends, families can interact with a Pop-up Performance on Saturday or pick up a design challenge, hunt for ideas in the galleries, and then create fantastic designs with the Drop-in Design team on Sundays. During the school holidays, families can take part in Digital Kids and The Imagination Station or book onto a Make-it workshop.
