Something for all tastes
We run family friendly activities throughout the school holidays including art and craft sessions, den building workshops and outdoor challenges such as bug hunting. Most activities are free and are drop-in sessions which run regardless of the weather.
In 2014 we will be hosting different themes to give visitors a deeper insight into our conservation work. These include 'Ships', 'Pests' and 'Fading of the Light'. Look at our event listings for more information.
Bringing the past to life
