August sees the reopening of the redeveloped Museum, but before that happens we have a few tempting activities for you. We start off in the Guide Hut, spend two day in the Shires with a couple of free drop-in craft sessions and finish in the Sensory Garden back under our fantastic gazebo. Watch out for more activities in the new Museum!

Please Note: Spaces in our workshops are limited and they sometimes fill up quickly. If you would like to bring a group of 5 or more children or a larger childminding group please call in advance (01225 751339) and we will try to accommodate you. Where places can be reserved on Ticketsource there will usually be additional tickets available on the day, issued on a first come, first served basis.

All children under the age of 8 years must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Whilst we indicate a minimum age for each activity we are aware that younger children often attend with older siblings. We are usually happy for younger children to participate, but please be prepared to give them the support they require. We can provide paper and crayons to keep toddlers occupied – please ask us.
