The Dino Doodle Room is a space to draw and doodle freely.

UPDATE! The Doodle Room will be closed all day on Thursday 16th February for ticketed workshops, and between 11am and 12pm, and 2pm and 3pm, on Friday 17 February. The trail will go ahead at all times.

It is open to all to have fun sketching and doodling using the resources provided. Together we'll turn the gallery into an evolving artwork of doodles, dreams and imagination inspired by this year's theme...Dinosaurs! 

There will also be a dino-themed play area for younger children, Dinosaur Hunt around the museum and, of course, our life-size Dinosaur models in the garden.

From time to time the gallery will be closed for bookable family events. We will advertise these times beforehand with details of how your family can book ticket's. Just take a look at our Events page.

The Dino Doodle Room is free admission, and you can drop in anytime outside of the bookable activities. 

The activity takes place in the ground floor Main Gallery and is fully accessible.
