We have a season inspried by botanical exploration with lots of exciting events.  Highlights include kids and family workshops, and there is more to come over the remaining season. 

And if you just want to go round the Museum there are always activities and trails for kids - Make your Mark is extremely popular and allows kids to respond to some of the things they have seen.  You can then post your work on the special board alongside others!
