Welcome to the Tullie House Families Area
Tullie House are winners of the Telegraph Kids in Museums Family Friendly Museum Award. We follow the Kids in Museums manifesto and aim to provide a welcoming, family friendly atmosphere, first class family friendly activities and events throughout the year, spacious baby-changing areas, comfortable gallery spaces and a child-friendly restaurant menu.
Museum Gallery Trails
While you are in the museum with your family we have a range of trails you can follow to make your visit a little more exciting.
You can download an interactive version of our Summer Holiday trail here - our historical characters have got themselves mixed up while playing hide and seek and need your help to work out where they come from.
We also have specific trails for different areas of the museum.
These are also available to pick up at our Trail Station near the museum entrance. Please bring your own pencil.
