Visitors to the Museum yesterday may have noticed strange knitted items sprouting up around the grounds. Our weather-hardy team were busy installing the Easter trail ready for the weekend.

This year’s Easter Trail is inspired by the urban art form, Yarn-bombing. Hundreds of knitted things have been installed around the Museum’s grounds – some high, and some low.


The Avenue of Pompoms is not to be missed and certain to bring a smile to anyone’s face on even the gloomiest of days.



It’s not just pompoms that are decorating the grounds, little critters have also invaded. Look out for the family of white mice and the Easter chicks that are visiting the Mount Vernon Garden.

A tired donkey has hitched a ride in the Conestoga wagon. Some of our trees are wearing bright patchwork blankets to try and keep warm!

A bench on the South side of the house has had an alarming number of kitted mushrooms and flowers grow all over it.

If you do come to visit the Museum to see these knitted works of art in person, be sure to pick up a trail sheet at reception. Once you have answered all of the questions, take your sheet to the cafe to get your prize – follow the knitted eggs to find the way to the cafe!
