VISIT THE MERL THIS FEBRUARY HALF TERM FOR FUN ACTIVITIES AND MORE

This half term, our events and activities are inspired by ‘Our Green Stories‘, a project exploring environmental issues through our collections. You can enjoy bookable and drop-in workshops, free trails, activities and crafts all on a theme of theme fast fashion and ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’.

As always, there are lots of other activities for families to do in the museum and garden throughout half term.

  • Discover our Winter Family Activity Pack for aged 5+ (£4 per pack from the Gift Shop)
  • Have a go at a variety of garden trails including our woodland brass rubbing trail
  • Have fun on the fabulous wooden play-on tractor and wagon and meet the chicken in the garden
