MORE INFO

Throughout the year the museum provides fun and exciting workshops that enable children to explore themes in a creative and practical way.

The workshops can be led either by museum staff or by experts who have been asked to lead a workshop on a particular topic.

These reasonably priced sessions often take place in the school holidays to provide activities to occupy children when they are needed by parents the most!

The workshops are aimed at 8 years and upwards but may be suitable for younger children if accompanied by an adult.

All workshops must be booked in advance.

To book a place on any of the workshops, please call into the Museum Shop or telephone us on 01527 62509.
