Children’s Trail

Guidebook for Princes and Princesses

Children can use this guidebook to find out more about the art on display and to learn how their life would have been if they were a European prince or a princess all those years ago (1600-1800). Questions are posed for two age groups to answer.

Question 1 is for 5-9 year olds.
Question 2 is for 10-13 year olds.

The trail is free with every children’s entry ticket sold. Children visiting the exhibition must be accompanied by a paying adult.
