Craft activity

Come and join in the fun with the 'Family Explorers' activity day at the museum on Tuesday 28 August 2018 from 10am to 2pm.

The museum will be providing a fun filled day for children. Get creative with our art and craft activities. We'll be making paper bag puppets and rainbow magic wands. Have a go at rock art and make your very own listening ears, just like the BFG.

Explore the museum and garden with our trails and test your knowledge with our quizzes.

The Garden Tea Room will be serving light savoury snacks, delicious cakes, ice creams and drinks.

Admission is £1.75 per person (annual ticket not valid), which includes entrance to the museum and garden. All children must be accompanied.
