Exciting activities designed to stimulate children’s interest.

The objects and pictures from the museum collection are used to engage children’s learning, which supports the Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Children can:

  • play the Musical Stones of Skiddaw
  • get up close to our fox and badger
  • learn about our 500 million year old trilobite
  • discover our 700 year old surprise!
  • follow our fox and badger trails, to find clues and stories in the museum
