In the school holidays, we run themed sessions and family fun days that bring the Museum’s collection to life. More recently, our holiday events have been small and socially distanced, so we can continue to spark families’ excitement about the heritage of our local area.

Toddler Tales

Every Wednesday, bring your pre-schoolers for a fun morning of accessible and interactive tales about the Vale and Downland Museum’s diverse collection, along with craft activities to bring each story to life.

Tickets must be booked in advance online here

For children aged 3 – 5 years. Due to social distancing measures we are limited to family groups of a maximum of 4 people, including at least 1 adult.
