Some extra museum fun for your Friday afternoon!

Taking a different theme and activity each week, our Engagement team will be on hand to share some of the fascinating facts and surprising stories behind our collections, through object handling, practical demonstrations or quick crafts.

The location of activities will change each week according to the theme – please ask a member of staff for more information on the day.

Five visitors look at shelves of agates in our Natural World galleries.
