We love having young visitors in the Museum and have prepared a range of activities to suit all ages.

The activities listed below are available to all during normal Museum opening hours and are included in your annual entry ticket.


New for 2018: the buzz words are VIRTUAL REALITY: a ride through a Somerset coalmine but using a digital headset. It is popular with children and adults.

We have a range of QUIZZES available for you to try during your visit.  The 12 month tickets mean that you can come to the Museum often and try a different quiz each time.


Follow the AMMONITE TRAIL : this one is good for smaller people as a lot of it happens at their eye level.

We have new BABY ammonites in the trail for 2018.

 


The DRESSING UP area is popular. Mop caps and aprons for the children and mortar boards  and gowns for the adults.


BE SURE TO STOP BY THE SMELL BOXES: on your way round the Victorian town.


A Creative Writing competition, for children of all ages, which runs through the summer of 2018.

In addition to the above the volunteers in our Education team run several special Children’s Events, during half-term and school holidays. These are usually in the mornings and there is a small charge towards craft materials and refreshments. Details of these event mornings are advertised on the Events page.
