An American Toy Story Launch

March 19, 2016 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

An American Toy Story comes to life for our opening weekend.

Antiques Roadshow’s Marc Allum and Lisa Lloyd will be holding a very special toy valuation— bring along your toys and collectibles and find out if you’ve got something really special on your hands.

Watch an action-packed Jedi duel on the Museum’s lawns, and learn how to battle with lightsabers yourself with stunt actors from Squire Stage Combat.

Check out a Back to the Future DeLorean, complete with hoverboard! Have your photo taken in celebration of Marty McFly and the Doc’s adventures through space and time.

And see Frozen’s Elsa perform the hit song ‘Let it Go’, as well as holding meet and greets throughout the day.

We’ll also be joined by a host of costumed characters. Visitors are invited to come along in fancy dress themselves, and will be able to have their faces painted as their favourite characters.

Included with gardens only admission. Visitors who arrive dressed as their favourite film character will be given free entry.

Jedi duel demonstrations at 12.30pm, 2.30pm, and 4.30pm

Drop-in stage combat workshops from 1.30- 2.30pm and 3.30- 4.30pm

Toy valuation from 12-5pm.
