Family Activity Days

Family Activity Days

Join us in the museum’s unique learning space for dedicated family activities during school holidays throughout the year.

Our fun filled crafts and hands on activities aim to provide entertainment not only for children, but their adults too!

Activities range from traditional butter churning to hand crafting madcap tophats, 3D hot air balloons and beautiful notebooks with bespoke prints.

Every holiday provides weekly opportunities to engage in bespoke Dickensian workshops and the chance to take home (or taste!) your own creations.





No booking is necessary, simply turn up on the day.

For more information please email

Summer Half Term: Tuesday 27th May

11am - 4pm


Activities run as drop in sessions (unless otherwise stated) and are FREE with general museum admission.


Please note that children must be accompanied at all times.
