Knucker the Dragon

Knucker the Dragon Nature School

Did you know we’ve got a dragon in our woods? Don’t worry, he’s friendly and along with his mini-beast friends has lots to teach you about life in the woods. Once inside the Museum, join us for a feast of free, forest themed activities this summer.

Drop-in sessions suitable for children of all ages will be open 11am – 4pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday across the Summer Holidays. We’ve got something for everyone!

Don’t forget the Knucker Nature School is part of our Wonderful Weeks through August. Click here to see what else you can explore 

No separate booking needed. The activity is included in the price of your Museum entry. Come and see us at the Knucker outdoor play area and try out the:

  • Creation Station – modelling, weaving and art and craft activities with a minibeast and dragon theme
  • Games Station – Minibeast dominoes, noughts and crosses, Knucker the Dragon story trail and more
  • Investigation Station – learn how to identify woodland footprints, excavate forest treasures, discover the uses of leaves and plants in the past and have a chance to see like a bug with our special glasses.
