Bring your family along to the Museum to dive into a world of fun and discovery!
We have so much for you to see and do, from our galleries and dedicated spaces right through to our riverbank trails that give you new ways to explore the natural world on our doorstep.
Look out for our family events and activities over the holidays – you might even meet Mr Toad!
Our Little Willows area is the heart of the family visit to the Museum. Enjoy creative play with your little ones with historic Henley fancy dress, hands-on activities and plenty of space to have a good time.
There’s lots for little ones to enjoy in our main galleries too, with interactive activities that bring the stories we tell to life, fancy dress, trails and more. Unlock wonder and exploration.
The Wind in the Willows
Jump into the beloved story of Ratty, Mole, Badger, and of course, Mr Toad. Our Wind in the Willows 3D experience is beloved of young and old alike. Make tea in the washerwoman’s caravan, share in the thrills of Mr Toad’s escapades, and peep into Mole’s cosy home. Pick up an audio guide from our friendly front desk team for a fully immersive experience.
Very impressed with how interactive the Museum was, loads to do for kids!
With our terrific trails you can dive deeper into the Museum’s stories, or explore our beautiful natural surroundings. All trails can be downloaded to your phone or tablet, or printed out at home before your visit.

Do you have family parking
We have a large car park for Museum visitors with plenty of space for buggies. There is ramp access from the car park to the main entrance.
Can I bring a buggy
Absolutely! There is ramp access from the riverbank or from our carpark. Once inside, there is a lift to the first floor, or you can leave buggies in our buggy park area by the stairs.
Can I bring a picnic
You are welcome to bring a picnic: we have benches on the grass outside for you to use.
Please note, food and drink can’t be brought into the galleries as it risks introducing hungry critters that are a risk to our collection. We love a picnic as much as you, so please use our dedicated picnic benches on the grass outside the museum.
Do you have baby changing facilities
Baby changing facilities can be found in the accessible toilet on the ground floor.
It was fantastic and I will recommend it to everyone! I will come here again and again.
