World of Wonders!

A brand new gallery for young people and their fellow adventurers - open from 10th May

We’re proud to announce the opening of a gallery for young people and their fellow adventurers in May 2018. This new gallery is an inclusive, audience-led space that uses the collection as a starting point for new ideas and responses.

This gallery encourages visitors to touch, play, sing and dance. Visitors will meet a penguin in a tunnel, find a bone-shaker in the sky, and watch rabbits jump mid-leap!

The WOW! gallery has been made possible with generous funding of the DCMS/WOLFSON Museums & Galleries Improvement Fund 2016-18 and The Friends of The Wilson.

There is a buggy park in the gallery with food and drink welcome. There is also an on-site café, lifts to all floors and changing facilities.

Visitors are invited to a special launch event on Thursday 10th May 2018, 10am – 12 noon, with the gallery opening fully from Friday 11th May 2018.

Entry to the WOW! gallery will be free, with donations encouraged.
