Join us for hands on virtual and real experiences at The MERL this October Half Term

Get up close and personal with some of our museum artefacts as part of our ‘Please Touch Object Handling’ sessions and investigate what our objects tell us about shepherding and farming. Then move up a gear, fasten your seat belt and have a go on our VR quad bike experience to discover what it’s like to be a shepherd on Dartmoor today.
