Christmas at the Museum of Carpet

Step into the Christmas spirit at the Museum of Carpet, Kidderminster this December.

Yule be sorry if you miss out on this festive family fun!

Fun for all the family

In our galleries, kids can learn about carpets and Kidderminster by playing our fun interactives and following our themed trails.

However, during 2020, we have realised that not everyone can make it to the museum and many might have to entertain themselves at home.

We have therefore released children’s activity resources so you can encounter our museum from the comfort of your own home! Browse our selection of downloadable seasonal craft instructions or pick up an activity pack from our gift shop.

We hope to expand our offering in the coming months and explore new ways to connect with families. We welcome any suggestions on how we can best serve families and children in this challenging environment.

The museum of carpet is signed up to the Kids in Museums Manifesto.

Kids in Museums was created to ensure museums are welcoming, easy and accessible places for children, young people and families.

We work continually to ensure our museum is a friendly and informative place to explore, have fun, and learn together. We strive to ensure our facilities and galleries are practical, comfortable and accessible for families of all shapes and sizes.
