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

Children’s Museum Trail. July 24th until September 1st.

Our children’s trails for the school summer holidays is a

Seaside Scavenger Hunt

The trail will be available during normal Opening Hours, using your inclusive Museum ticket, from July 24th until September 1st.

It will have the children searching for small seaside related items many of which have been made by a Museum volunteer especially for the Event. They might include beautifully crafted miniature beach huts, a Punch and Judy show tent and a Lighthouse; along with shells and other bits and bobs. There are a couple of ‘surprise’ non seaside related items too which are related to the Museum itself.

Here are a selection of the activities that are available to our younger visitors during Museum opening hours and are included in your annual entry ticket.

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.

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.

The volunteers in the Museum’s Education team also run several special Children’s Events, during half-term and school holidays.

These are usually in the mornings when the Museum is otherwise closed; there is a small charge towards craft materials and refreshments.

Full details of these event mornings are advertised on the Events page.
