Compton Verney is delighted to welcome visitors with children. Whatever the weather, we can offer something for every member of your family to enjoy.
From our children’s woodland adventure play area, willow tunnels and nature trails to all-weather explorer backpacks and art related activities every school holiday there’s always plenty to capture the imagination, stimulate the mind and keep your children happy and interested.
Compton Verney’s commitment to families has been recognised by being long-listed twice for the Telegraph Kids in Museums Award.
Take part in any of our family activity backpacks or trails, and if you have a Children’s University Passport, collect a stamp from our shop after taking part in the activities.
The Welcome Centre has an interpretation area with a sensory wall for children to find out what is going on in the parkland and keep up-to-date with new projects and activities taking place.
In the House on the first floor is the Family & Discovery room for children of all ages to spend time learning about the collections and exhibitions on display.
