The Bath Preservation Trust has launched a series of events for families to enjoy at venues across the city over the summer holidays.
“We are offering fun learning activities for families at each of our museums, all of which are drop in activities that are included in the price of admission,” explained Karen Powers, the Bath Preservation Trust’s Learning and Engagement Assistant. “We’re really looking forward to welcoming families to our four museums this summer – whether they’re into rockets, fashion, Lego or crafts, we’ve got you covered with our family activities”
At the Herschel Museum of Astronomy they’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings this summer. Children can create a space picture featuring a shiny foil moon and a colourful rocket blasting off from Earth. They can also make a mini paper rocket that’s launched just by blowing through a straw!
The Museum of Bath Architecture meanwhile will have its special edition white Lego architectural bricks out and a new range of building challenges for master builders of all ages to explore Georgian architectural concepts then test their design and build skills.
The No.1 Royal Crescent will be focusing on the importance of image with a choice of two stylish hats to fashion – families can make and decorate either a beautiful bonnet or a brilliant bicorn hat to take home.
At Beckford’s Tower the focus is on encouraging families to explore the tower’s fantastic spiral staircase before making their own decorative spiral to display at home as a reminder of their visit.
