October - Under the Sea

Mini Mariners fish 

Wobble like a jellyfish, glide like a plesiosaur and  snap like a shark as we make our way through the museum to discover the magnificent world of creatures that live under the sea. Enjoy a touch tour of sea-specimens and objects, listen to stories, and create your own watercolour painting or sea creature headdress.

Every Tuesday during term time | One Saturday each month

Time: 10am or 11am


November – Pirates Ahoy!

Let's follow the treasure map around the museum to find the secret treasure cave. Learn how to sing, dance and scrub the deck like a pirate. Then you can decorate your own pirate hat or parrot puppet to take home and enjoy some special pirate science experiments.
