January School Holiday Activities


Summer School Holiday Activities

15 - 26 January 2018

Our January holiday programme is inspired by our current exhibition Knot Touch, which is a tactile exhibition celebrating the versatility and traditions of knots.

Celebrate maritime tradition with macramé workshops, interactive tours with museum characters and explore the ‘touch friendly’ Knot Touch exhibition.

Visitors can choose to do all three activities or pick and mix!

Activities are available every day during the school holidays and are suitable for children aged 4 to 12 from 10am - 3pm each day.
