Winter half-term 2016

Winter half-term family activities

Monday 20 February to Friday 24 February 2017
11.00am - 3.00pm

Put on your winter woolies and wellies, and warm up with a week of creative activities and countryside skills, including outdoor trails, arts and crafts to inspire all of your family!

Wet weather will not spoil play as we have plenty of areas under cover.

(Visit this webpage each morning during half-term for a list of activities happening that day).

The Museum’s historic buildings are fascinating places to explore! Learn how food was prepared without modern technology in the Tudor kitchen. See how our watermill works (using a very topical natural resource) and buy a bag of grain for the hungry ducks on the mill pond! Look out for the Shire horses and the traditional breed farm animals including sheep, chickens and geese.

Most activities are under cover and will run from 11am – 3pm and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Dogs on leads are welcome and there is ample free parking. Please wear clothes and shoes that are suitable for playing outdoors.

Regular admission charges apply and the Museum will open at 10.30am and close at 4.00pm.
