David Livingstone Birthplace Fun

Spooky Crafts (12:00-13:00)

Date: 31 October 2021

Book your place and prepare to get witch-crafty!

Be inspired by our gruesome show and tell, before making something horrid of your own.

Children can touch, hold, and investigate several items from our collection, including real skulls. They’ll be encouraged to plunge their hands into some gruesome sensory activities, before creating something Halloweeny of their own to take home.

If you’re heading into the museum, make sure you take part in our ghoulish quests:

Ghost Hunt - Can you spot the ghosts, monsters, and Halloweeny beings hiding throughout the exhibition?

Horrible History Quiz - Can you examine our weird and wonderful collection, and find the answers that we’re looking for?

All activities are Free (entry to museum not included) and children will receive a treat for taking part!

There are four sessions starting at 11:00, 12:00, 13:00 and 14:00 on the 31 October 2021.

Families Free
