StorytellerJoin us this half term as our costumed storyteller brings to life the classic stories from ‘The Wind in the Willows’, whose author, Kenneth Grahame, worked at the Bank for 30 years.
There’s trouble down by the riverbank for Mr Toad and his friends Ratty, Mole and Badger. A giant pike has been spotted terrorising the waters, and Mole has mysteriously disappeared! Can the troublesome Mr Toad save the day, or will life on the riverbank never be the same again?
Gold barThese fun and interactive sessions will spark young ones’ imaginations…and maybe adults’ too! Story times are 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2.00pm, 3.00pm and 4.00pm. Although there is no need to book, space is limited, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
While you’re at the Museum, there are plenty of attractions to make sure you have a fun family day out, including a banknote jigsaw, a roller ball game and the opportunity to take part in some safe cracking. You can even hold our genuine gold bar, which might take you by surprise – it weighs in at an impressive 13 kilos! We also have activity sheets for children of all ages, with a small prize for everyone who takes part.
