Museum Prize Trail 50p – our themed trail for families around the museum costs just 50p and children will get a small prize when they find all the answers.  Hunt high and low, upstairs and downstairs, great fun for kids of all ages.  We change the trail regularly so children will always find a new way to explore our museum.

Paper Crafts 50p – always something different to colour and create!  A simple paper activity to complete at our craft table or when you get home.  Lots of fun and we regularly provide new themed paper crafts to try.

Craft Packs – we create our own themed craft packs at prices ranging from £1 to £4.  These change regularly for you to buy and create at our craft table or when you get home.
