Join us for three days of springtime surprises this Easter at National Museum of Rural Life.

From lambs and chicks to Easter activities, storytelling and music, each day will be different.


Lambs, calves, chicks and some unusual spring animals, from skunks to hedgehogs.


Meet the Easter Bunny, see real rabbits, go on an Easter trail, make some Easter crafts and get guerrilla gardening!


Storytelling fun, from a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in the museum to Beatrix Potter-inspired tales in the kitchen garden

Our free events programme is supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery.
