Play dress-up with parts of a knight’s suit of armour and some of your favourite superhero gear.
Be a hero — or at least look and feel like one. Dress up as a knight from the Renaissance, try on Wonder Woman’s arm braces and test out Captain America’s shield! Visit our amazing Armour exhibition to explore the evolving roles of personal protective gear in battle, sports, society and popular culture. While you’re there, join in this fun family activity for all ages. Experiment by trying on different types of armour, and see how it’s been recreated and reimagined through the centuries.
