Summer Museum trail
This leads young visitors around the rooms encouraging them to use their artistic and mathematical skills as well as seeing all our amazing collectons.
We now have a designated area in our North Room where children can draw and colour from their imaginations or objects around them. They have a choice of a table and chairs or an old school desk with a hard folding seat. They very much prefer the soft seats!
There are now six historic outfits for children to try, three for girls and three for boys, from Viking to Victorian with the Tudors in between.
The girls outfits modelled by a charming recent visitor.
We haven't seen any boys trying their outfits, they have been shy and secretive.
