In this session, join artist Jacqui Campbell to discover how we can be inspired by the nature around us to create artwork.

Each session is led by an artist who guides children and their carers through sensory and creative activities.

ID Morning

Are you a bit of an amature rock hound, do you like collecting interesting rocks, do have a strange looking rock that you would like to know more about? Bring your rock or fossil find to the Museum and our team from the Museum and Department of Earth Science will help you identify it.

This is a drop in event but if we are busy we might ask you to chose your favourite for our team to look at.


Half term millipede madness

Arthropleura is an extinct millipede-like animal that lived about 346-295 million years ago, during the Carboniferous Period. It is the largest known land invertebrate to ever live, and the fossil on display in the Museum, is the largest ever found.

Come along to our free drop-in event and take part in millipede-themed craft activity to celebrate our new giant millipede fossil exhibit. Creepy crawly fun for all the family.
