Compton Verney is delighted to welcome visitors with children. Whatever the weather, we can offer something for every member of your family to enjoy.

There's always plenty to capture the imagination, stimulate the mind and keep your children happy and interested.
Our discovery room offers a range of books, activities and crafts to help you and your family find out more about our collections and exhibitions.
Our free all-weather family backpacks are a great way for you and your children to explore the Compton Verney collections together. Discover five different packs for various ages at the Family Unit.
Pick up one of four free grounds trails and explore the 120 acres of Compton Verney's parkland with fun hands on activities for children and adults to enjoy together.
Explore Nature's Art Box on the south lawn and get creative in the grounds using natural materials to make your very own land art.
Climb, swing and explore in our children's adventure playground or hide away in the willow tunnels.
During the school holidays we offer plenty of arty activities that are suitable for all ages. Whether it's half term, the summer holiday or winter break there are a whole host of things to do.
