Bugs and Beasties Trail

18 Oct - 28 Nov 2022
10:00-17:00

Outdoors

Free with museum admission and Annual Pass

Can you find the big bugs and beasties on the way up to and around the farm and learn some fun bug facts?

Pick up our new Bugs and Beasties Trail inside the museum, then see if you can spot the six eco-friendly cardboard bugs on your way up to the farm.

You will discover fun facts about the bugs, but keep your eyes peeled for the slug, snail, slater, spider, beetle and worm!

This trail is part of our Autumn Explorers event.
