Drop-in for some holiday fun and games at the museum this summer 

Join us every Monday and Friday during the holidays for a range of fun drop-in activities for all the family. Our friendly Enabler team will be bringing our favourite themes to life from dinosaurs to outer space and from ancient Egypt to Vikings. Plus we’ll be powering up with brand new activities inspired by our summer exhibition Game On.

Check back in June to find out what’s on.

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