Busy Bees

Posted on 15 May 2017

The museum is the place to be for a 'Busy Bees' family activity day on Tuesday 30 May from 10.00 to 2.00. This is a Family Explorers event.

Children can make a bee garden using paper plates and sunflower designs, and a fashionable bee headband. They will be able to experiment with honeycomb printing and create a bee inspired bag to carry all their creations home in. The Victorian kitchen will be creating some interesting drinks made using honey, while a bee trail will take visitors into the museum's walled garden.

A beekeeper will be on hand for visitors to discover more about our friendly, industrious garden visitors, and they will be challenged to find the 'queen' bee in the virtual beehive.

The museum's new exhibition, 'How Does Your Garden Grow?', will be open, appealing to green fingered visitors of all ages.

The Garden Tea Room will be serving light savoury snacks, delicious cakes, cream teas and drinks. Admission is £1.75 per person (annual ticket not valid), which includes entrance to the museum and garden.
