An amazing experience of colour, music and light for all ages

Colourscape is a celebration for the senses, an amazing experience of colour, music and light for all ages. 25 interlinked coloured chambers form a labyrinth on the front lawn of the Museum. Put on a cape and immerse yourself in a new world made up of soft curved edges filled with intense colour, and discover performance spaces filled with music and dancing.

Tickets can be purchased from the entrance of Colourscape for £5 on the day (no advance booking).

Entry to Colourscape is from 11am – 4pm daily with last admissions taken at 3.30pm
