Family learning activities 2014

Family activities 2014

Now free!  Our fun family activity sessions are now free for everyone.  Suitable for ages 5-11. Come along to  discover your creative side and make and take home a craft or artwork. All our sessions are led by artists, theatre and craft specialists and are linked to the amazing objects in the museum. Parent/Guardians need to stay with children but are welcome to take part (to be honest it is lots of fun for adults too!). Sessions run from 11.00 to 12.30 on a drop in basis – no need to book, just come along.
