There are plenty of fun things for families to do when you visit the Herbert. Hands on experiences, touch screens, story baskets, trails and the authentically smelling medieval toilet will all make sure you have an enjoyable and memorable day. The Herbert has extensive collections which are grouped under four headings - Visual arts, social & industrial history, archaeology and natural history.
There are family events on every school holiday, and most of them are free. There is also an annual free family exhibition during the summer holidays.
Note that The Herbert does not have its own car park.
