325 years, 325 objects: explorer trail

Free summer holiday activities for all the family

About the event

Monday 22 July to Friday 30 August
10am to 4.30pm

Explore our museum with your family this summer. Discover new things. Complete our explorer trail (to win a small prize). And make your very own gold-bar shaped moneybox.

Discover new things 

We’re 325 years old this summer. Our brand new exhibition uses 325 objects to tell a story from each one of our 325 years. 

Go on our explorer’s trail - to win a prize!  

Calling all explorers! Pick up a free trail sheet from our information desk. Go on a journey of discovery through our museum to find out how things have changed over time. Then hand in your completed sheet to claim your small prize.

Make your own moneybox 

Make your very own gold-bar shaped moneybox to decorate and take home.

What you need to know

This family activity takes place during the summer holidays. Any visitors who are lucky enough to be under 16 need to bring an adult.

We don’t have a lot of space for storing buggies and pushchairs. So we may ask you to take them with you as you go round the museum. 

Free entry. All activities are free. There is no need to book in advance.

Free admission

We are open Monday-Friday 10am to 5pm (excluding Bank Holidays), last entry at 4:30pm.
