In-Person Live Event – Join us at the Museum

Free family drop-in. All welcome but most suitable for age 3+.

We'll be making bats, spiders and owls and you can search for spooky creatures in paintings and in objects with our special gallery trail!

Capacity is limited at this drop-in event. If there is no space to sit and craft, we will provide you with some templates to take home. Please note this event is not bookable.

We encourage adults to wear masks at our activities. We are offering reduced capacity but due to the size of our spaces we are not able to ensure 2m social distancing at these craft activities.

If you suspect you have symptoms of coronavirus, we ask that you delay your visit and follow government guidance.

Please wear your mask on arrival to the museum and when moving around.
