Activities for under 5s at Norwich Castle

Activities for under 5s Cheering

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!

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.

Library books

We've teamed up with the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library to provide children's books linked to our collections across the museum.

Keep an eye out for books as you explore the galleries together, and take a few minutes to pause, snuggle up and share a book!
