Join in with a range of self-led activities from Wildlife Foraging to Craft Making.

Make a Nature Wand

Go on a wildlife detective hunt around the museum and see what you can find. Look out for leaves, wildflowers and feathers. Your nature wand will tell the story of your wildlife adventure!

Make a Ladybird Bookmark

Make a simple ladybird bookmark to help you keep up with your summer reading.

Healthy Duck Food

Beyond the museum, are 2000 miles of canal network which as a charity, we care for. We believe that spending time by water makes you happy and we want to bring the community to the museum to get to know and to enjoy the space. At the museum you can make up your own healthy duck food treats at our duck food station and feed the ducks.
