As part of your visit you can drop-in to one of our free activities and discover more about our Special Collections, research, exhibitions and historic library. Activities include short talks and tours, and print demonstrations on our Columbian press. 

We hold activities Wednesday - Saturday but there may be times when we are unable to. Our activities are free to attend and booking isn't required. Ask our staff on arrival and they can let you know what activities are running that day.

Our activities are not designed for large groups. To plan a group visit, please consult our Group Visits page.
