Children's Activity Event


Christmas this year in the Museum will be out of this world! We’re celebrating hosting the Tim Peake Soyuz space capsule with a star themed Christmas event. There will crafts, activities and music all with a little sprinkling of stardust!

Father Christmas will also be bringing his reindeer into land at the Museum. Come and meet the man himself in his grotto for a special Christmas treat. Father Christmas will be here from 11am – 12.30pm and 2pm – 3.30pm both days and costs £3.00 per child.

With mulled wine and minced pies in the café, what better way to spend the day?!
