Spring into action at half term when Milton Keynes Museum hosts holiday activities geared to young visitors

Spring half term will soon be upon us – a chance for children to down their pens and pencils and set about having some serious fun, and they will find no better place to do so than at Milton Keynes Museum.

This time around, youngsters are being invited to Capture the Colours, as the museum brings a splash of brightness to an otherwise gloomy February.

It will be delving into  the  science of colour with fun experiments and potion making.

There will also be a colour scavenger hunt through the galleries, ensuring creative little minds are kept busy.

Half term at the museum boasts something for everyone, with all the usual museum attractions taking attentions too.
