This year we are introducing an exciting new event to appeal to all the family. Activities will vary each month, but may include mini talks and tours to learn more about the museum and the stories it tells. There will be interesting demonstrations and usually you may be able to have a go! Every month there will be a “Big Draw” art activity and other “hands on” things the family can enjoy doing together too. Sometimes there might just be an exciting extra feature, such as the “Teddy Bears Picnic” arranged for May. Watch the website for details of these special, bonus events.
