Families

Hello and welcome to our family page! Allow me to introduce myself, I am Professor Ichthyosaurus and you will be seeing me around as I guide you through our family events and activities. The summer holidays are here and we have some fun craft activities now taking place EVERY Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – just turn up between 1pm and 3pm. You will also be able to look around our current exhibition ‘Beyond Beastly: Creatures Natural and Imagined’. This free exhibition is full of fascinating creatures both real and imagined. You can even build your own beast! Check out our YouTube video!

Hello! I am Pete the Plesiosaurus. Have you ever been to Queen Square and seen our amazing fossils and dinosaur bones? If not, why don’t you join Professor Ichthyosaurus and sign up to our family newsletter for some fun facts, crazy cartoons and amazing art activities.  You even get to meet our curator (dinosaur babysitter) . You will need a grown up (over the age of 18) to sign up for you and once they have done it, you will receive a newsletter four times a year. This video from our YouTube channel shows our museum curator Matt, being fossil tooth detective!
