Activity Thursdays

A truly brilliant day out for children of all ages. Our museum volunteers bring history to life with demonstrations, crafts and fun activities.

There are also our usual Step Back Together family activities around the museum.

Try your hand as a farm worker, help with the washing 'Victorian style', play with vintage toys, have a terrifying lesson in the school room… With so many hands-on activities, children will be kept amused all day.

Dates for 2017:

Easter Holiday - April 6th & 13th
Spring Half Term - Jun 1st
Summer Holiday - July 27th, August 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st

Activities vary on different days; however, here is a taste of what you might discover:
