Playful Museums: Engaging the under 5s

 Local museums across NI are providing a range of activities targetted specifically at under 5s.  This work is spotlighted during the month of February each year with the Playful Museums Festival.

This work started as a year-long HLF funded pilot programme. Through training, pilot workshops and the development of new community partnerships  local museums began the journey to become playful spaces for young visitors.  The first Playful Museums Festival took place in 2017 and the most recent in February 2019.  In 2019 13 local museums programmed 34 playful events in which over 5100 participated.
