Planning a visit with a child under 5? Here are some of the things we have at Norwich Castle to help you play and explore the galleries together!

Medieval Family Adventure Kits - New!

Created as part of Norwich Castle: Royal Palace Reborn, these kit bags contain a selection of items to add a little Medieval sparkle to your journey around the museum. You can borrow a bag from the Rotunda at the museum.

What’s inside?

  • A copy of 'I See a Family': a brand-new Medieval story book for Norwich
  • A ‘poppet’ doll:  a Medieval character who would love for you to show them around the galleries
  • A sensory item: a little something the Medieval poppet has brought with them to share with you and help you explore the galleries

Bucket toys

Choose some toys and pop them in a bucket. Take them with you and play as you explore the galleries! A great way to let your little ones take the lead. Who knows what you will discover together? Pick up a bucket from the Rotunda at Norwich Castle.

Natural History Gallery books

Take a few minutes to pause and share a story surrounded by animals in our Natural History Gallery. Find these books under the bench in the Natural History Gallery.
