Abbey Museum’s School Holiday Activities

Abbey Museum specialises in entertaining and engaging school holiday activities and workshops for children aged 3 to 12 years to explore history and archaeology.

Kids Dig It! Family Fun Weeks 2020

Taking place during school holidays, we have a number of historically themed programs to keep kids learning and active during the school down time.  Representing distinct historical eras, the Kids Dig It! programs align with our museum values of ‘enriching peoples’ lives through the stories created from our collections’.  During the school holidays, our collection can tell lots of stories! Activities include archery, excavating a mini archaeological dig, historical games, era costumes and dress-ups, mask making, shield painting, and so much more. Activities run from Monday to Friday (no weekends) and are open to groups also.   Always conscious of cost and facilitation, the Abbey Museum puts your experience first!
