Summer Make It! Crafts 2024

Tue 30th Jul 2024 to Thu 29th Aug 2024 - 10.30 - 2.30


This summer we have 5 weeks of Make it craft activities each linked to one of three themes.  We have a new exhibition called ‘I grew up ’80’s’ all about 1980’s popular culture so one craft each week links to this theme. We also have a new gallery –  ‘Lives in our Landscape’ opening in June 2024, so one craft each week is linked to this theme.  The third craft each week is dinosaur themed.

Tickets available soon.   (£3.50 per child per activity – booking recommended)

Ticket sales end at 3pm the day before the session.  Remaining tickets will be available on the day at reception.

There will also be themed trails around the museum with a collectable badge as a prize. (£2 per child includes a pen – pay at the reception desk)
