Get creative this summer and make your own dragonfly or flower out of willow tree branches! Once you're happy with your creation, take it home, display it somewhere in your house/garden and show it off to friends and family. This session is led and supervised by our Education Officer. 

Sessions should be booked online in advance of your visit as we have limited space. 


There will also be other trails and activities to take part in around the Museum galleries to make your visit the best summer day out! Don't forget to visit Crowns Cafe and our Play Park during your visit.

The Museum is closed on Mondays. We are open as usual on Saturday and Sundays. 

Information for booking sessions is included in the activity information above. If you have any enquiries about booking a session, please contact us.
