Museum is Full Of Fun During February Half Term

Come and see what the Corinium Museum has in store for children with a whole host of exciting activities during the February half term.

On Monday February 16th, children can explore the Iron Age through the museumís 2,000 year old artefacts, and find out about life in the days of round huts and burial mounds. They can also make their own Iron Age brooch to take home with them.

This activity, aimed at 7-12 year olds and from 2pm-3.30pm, costs £3 per child or £2 for season ticket holders.

Following this, the museum will be hosting a family drop-in event focusing on the Victorians on Wednesday February 18th. This event runs from 2-4pm and children can make a Victorian style hot-air balloon in the museumís Hare Gallery. The cost is included in admission price, or is £1 for the event only.

On Thursday February 19th, families can go potty with clay during a family activity from 2pm-3.30pm. Children can look at the museumís large collection of pottery and make their own drawings before being let loose with clay. Parents, if you have not played with clay since you were at school, bring the kids and enjoy yourself! Price is included in general admission, but booking is essential.

The Corinium Museum is also out and about at local libraries. Find out about the fascinating woolly mammoth, and create a model to take home. Venues, prices and dates are available by contacting museum staff.

Please contact the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611 to book a place for any of the event above or for further enquiries.
