Love Stories for the Earth

Join us at the Polar Museum with renowned storyteller Marion Leeper to explore life under water, with a story from the far North about The Mended Seal.

17 stories, each one launched in a different place. Love Stories for the Earth will lure children away from screens and into nature, asking questions and having adventures.

Expect rocks and shells, an undersea palace, and a story about give and take between the people that row on the sea and the creatures that live underneath.

Folklore Explorer

Pick up an activity guide and become a Folklore Explorer at the Museum of Cambridge.

Search through the old Whitehorse Inn to find answers to riddles, solve puzzles and explore the history of folklore, legends, and the people of Cambridge.

Available throughout the summer holidays during normal opening hours.

Gravel Hunters at the Museum

Come and learn more about the warm chalky sea that covered East Anglia 90million years ago and the animals that lived in it. We’ll help you to ID the flint fossils that formed in the sea and you can take away a fossil ID sheet so you can continue your search for fossils when you get home.

This event will be held in a gazebo outside the Museum so please wear suitable clothing/sunscreen. The event is suitable for 5+years and because of small parts we can't accept younger children. Children must be accompanied by an adult. There are two sessions 10.30-11.30 and 14.30-15.30.
