Join us for summer half term when we host five days of holiday activities geared to young visitors.

During the school holiday we’ve got a host of special attractions as well as all the usual demonstrations, displays, and dozens of fun things to do

Extraordinary science, arts and crafts workshops, and magic lantern shows are likely to be among the attractions, but keep an eye on this page for full details nearer the time.

And of course all your hands-on favourites will  also be available: playing music the way the Victorians did, attending classes in the Victorian schoolroom, making hot buttered toast over the range, brass-rubbing, taking a seat in the stocks,  sending morse code and much, much more.

As usual, our granary cafe will be providing delicious affordable goodies to keep energy levels up.

The Museum is open from 11am-4.30pm every day during half-term.
