Later in the week we’ll be looking at some birds a little further away from home, without free Penguin craft days on Tuesday 21st & Thursday 23rd (11am-2pm), for no extra charge join us at the Museum for a drop in arts and crafts session suitable for all ages.
And if that’s not enough on Wednesday 22nd you can become an Antarctic Explorer yourself! Go behind the scenes to find out about the equipment you would need to take, bake your own bannock bread and make a souvenir just like Captain Scott. This session will run twice with a morning session for 5-9 year olds and an afternoon session for those 10+.
