Children and Young Visitors

Families and children of all ages are always welcome at MIMEd. Come and have fun together while learning about the history of musical instruments.

Children and young visitors

Our children’s activity trail can help introduce the instruments to young children while our hands-on interactive kiosks allow visitors both young and old the opportunity to “play” our historic keyboards, listen to our sackbuts, and watch how to play the serpent.

We run a wide range of practical, hands-on workshops, led by musical instrument specialists throughout the year. In addition, tours or other activities can be arranged to cater for special interests and a varied needs.

Our education website, Musical Instrument at Your Fingertips, is a wonderful resource to help you plan your visit.
