Events and Activities

Looking forward to the Easter holidays!

We have had a busy season with lots of exciting events.  Highlights listed here include kids and family workshops, but there is much more to come over the season. 

And there are always activities and trails for kids in the Museum - Make your Mark is extremely popular and allows kids to respond to some of the things they have seen.


All workshops £1 or free with Museum entry!
