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.

Easter Holiday - April 5th & 12th
Spring Half Term - May 31st
Summer Holiday - July 26th, August 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd & 30th
