Kids’ Trails and Museum Explorer Backpacks

Visiting the Museum with children?

Why not try our brand new Museum Explorer Backpacks? The packs are available to borrow from Reception and contain a range of activities to help you explore the Museum, including aroma boxes, items of costume, quilt puzzles, replica handling objects, riddles, and other exciting activities.

There are three packs, each with a different American animal theme: Baby Bear (4-6 years), Raccoon (6-8 years), and Eagle (8- 11 years). Don’t forget to collect your sticker when you’ve finished!

Kids’ trail sheets are also available to download and bring with you when you visit the Museum. We have 3 different trails available to suit a range of ages. Each sheet has a fun trail to follow through the Manor House and colouring-in pages.
