Family Friendly

What else do we offer?

Wolverhampton Arts and Culture is made up of four venues, Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Bantock House Museum, Bilston Gallery and Wolverhampton City Archives. So whatever interest you have in art, culture, museums and galleries – we’ve got you covered.

Each of our venues offers something unique for families.

Wolverhampton Art Gallery

Our city centre art gallery is packed with inspiring and uplifting paintings and sculptures. We also have lots of different changing exhibitions that highlight everything from world-famous artists like Roy Lichtenstein or Thomas Gainsborough through to cutting edge contemporary artists.

Our entire programme is supported by a range of family-friendly activities and events, see our full programme here.

Bantock House and Park

Bantock House and Park is the perfect place for a full day out, with the beautifully refurbished Bantock family home surrounded by 43 acres of parkland and formal gardens. The house is packed with period furnishings and locally made enamels, japanned ware, jewellery, toys, dolls and Pre-Raphaelite paintings.

Our Courtyard Café is open from 9am for the fabulous Bantock Breakfast and continues to serve throughout the day including lunches and naughty-but-nice cake.

Bilston Gallery

Bilston Gallery showcases everything that makes the Black Country the place it is. From the incredible range of fossils and minerals, to the intricate cut steel jewellery and world-famous Bilston Enamels. We offer fun creative sessions for children aged 0-7 years called Bilston Boddlers. See more HERE.

Wolverhampton City Archives

For families who want to find out more about their own history and the history of the city, the Archives is the place to be. Great for school projects or family history research, the Archives’ vast collections include maps, books, census returns, newspapers, records from local schools, churches, clubs, societies and businesses, electoral registers, and indexes to births, deaths and marriages. There are also over 30,000 photographs, plus films, sound recordings, memorabilia and much more.
