Little Explorers

Activity mornings for little ones.

Craft activity

Come and join in the fun with the 'Little Explorers' activity mornings at the museum on Tuesdays 31 July, and 7 and 14 August 2018, 10am to 12pm.

The museum has teamed up with Action for Children and Wimborne Library to provide fun filled mornings for little ones (children aged 2 years and over). The action packed summer programme will feature crafts and activities based on the subject of 'Mischief Makers'.

There is a different theme each week:

  • 31 July – It’s all about dogs! Think… 'Hairy Maclary'
  • 7 August – Ahoy me hearties! Think… 'Pirates Love Underpants'
  • 14 August – We’re going underwater today! Think… 'Barry the Fish'

The Garden Tea Room will be serving light savoury snacks, delicious cakes, ice creams and drinks. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings while the little ones are entertained.

Admission is £1.50 per person each week (annual ticket not valid), which includes entrance to the museum and garden. All children must be accompanied.

For further information please contact the museum.
