Explore National Glass Centre with our Adventure Backpacks and see what you can discover!
Packed full of fun and investigatory activities, our Adventure Backpacks allow you to explore National Glass Centre and to discover the properties of glass as well as light and colour.
Inside the backpack you’ll find a set of Activity Cards which will help you to explore the gallery spaces and exhibitions using the contents of the backpack. Each card contains a fun and educational activity with an interesting fact on the back. There's even an Art Pad in there which is yours to keep!
