"What a great idea the Sensory Bags are! It was a fantastic way to get my son to really take in what he was seeing."


Our bespoke Sensory Backpacks are full of multi-sensory objects that create endless opportunities for exploring Seven Stories in a playful and hands-on way. These fabulous backpacks are specially curated to compliment the stories, themes and activities that are found in our exhibitions.

There are a variety of unique bags to choose from, all of which contain:

  • A book
  • A handmade, tactile sensory mat
  • A selection of props
  • A sheet of suggestions and activities to help you get the most out of the backpack and our exhibitions

Sensory Backpacks are free to borrow from reception.
