Roman Explorers

Posted on 14 May 2015
The museum is the place to be for a fantastic day of Roman activities for all the family on Thursday 28 May from 10 to 4 (last entry 3pm). Take a journey back in time to the days of the rascally Romans with fun activities that will fire the imagination. Handle some of our Roman archaeology and take a taste of some typical food in the Roman kitchen. Find out more with our hands on art and craft activities including mosaics, clay jewellery making and scrolls. Try on some Roman costumes and make a card helmet or shield; but make sure you find out which Roman gods to please or there may be trouble! In addition there will be further art and craft activities, trails, quizzes and much, much more. The Garden Tea Room will be open to serve delicious cakes, ice creams, snacks and drinks – but no dormice or lark’s tongues! Admission is £2 (annual pass not valid for this event). For further information please contact the museum.
