Come and learn about bugs at Curious Kids! We will be exploring how a caterpillar transforms info a butterfly, craft dragonflies, sing songs, and see some of the bugs in the Museum’s collection.
50 minutes of stories and multi-sensory fun for families with curious minds – for children ages 2 to 5: connect to the objects around the Museum, delve into the past and have fun learning together.
Each session starts with a story connected to our theme before using different materials, sounds and games to connect to an aspect of our collections each month. We often make something you can take home and we always have fun.
