A fun new resource play area has opened at Bristol City Council’s City Museum and Art Gallery, specially designed for 0-5 year olds.
The Small World area gives young children the chance to actually touch real museum objects and find out more about the building and its exhibits whilst remaining in a cosy, enclosed space.
There are even real museum objects to touch, with stuffed animals from the museum’s collection out on show to be stroked and studied.
“The real animals have proved really popular with the children,” said the museum’s Elizabeth Rhodes, who helped create the area. “The idea is to get the children communicating and asking questions.”
Yeah, like “Mummy why they’ve killed the fox?”
