Discover our Collection

can I take children toNature in Art, Gloucester Picture
Throughout the year we host temporary exhibitions so there will always be something new to see. Check our main website before your visit to see what is on.

There is also chance to see artists at work, from February to November. Each week an artist sets up in our artists' studio and is there for visitors to see and talk to about their work.

Explore our collections through using our handling boxes, the Sculpture box in particular will enable children to explore the texture and feel of materials which relate to the artworks on display. But also there is the option of doing some brass-rubbing and exploring the sculpture garden, completing the nature trail along the way. The outdoor play area is also a great place for the children to have fun.
During the school holidays we host an array of art activities for children, all within our purpose built education centre. Activities range from batik work to block printing to sculpting birds. The opportunities to be inspired at Nature in Art are endless.

To find out more about our child-friendly activities please visit our education website Here you will find out about our activities as well as our Family Fun Days which take place throughout the year and are special days featuring real live animals for children and families to engage with.
