February Half Term

We have plenty of things to do for kids this half term, including free family trails, as well as the chance to explore our favourite toys, sweets and household goods for the past 150 years. The perfect opportunity to get the whole family talking!

Where Does It All Go? Sustainable Packaging Object Handling

Dates: 15 – 23 February
Every day 2pm – 3pm
Are you interested in teaching your kids about sustainable living? This half term we are learning about where our packaging goes when we throw it away, and getting hands on with our brand new object handling session exploring where our packaging has ended up from the Victorian period to the present day. Test your skills as historians as you handle objects up to 150  years old and figure out when they date to, before working as a family to decide how they might impact the planet. Continue exploring, and discover the latest developments in sustainable packaging in our range of temporary exhibitions.
