Fun for all the family

In our galleries, children can learn about carpets, why they were originally created, what is used to make them, how they are designed, what weaving is as well about the famous carpet capital of the world, Kidderminster, by playing our fun interactives and following our themed trails.

If you are unable to visit us soon, you can still get involved. We have 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.

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.
