Welsh Museums Festival
Here we go again!
Welsh Museums Festival is back this coming October, with a whole week of special events and activities for all ages at museums across Wales, many of them FREE. This year’s Festival runs from Saturday 28 October until Sunday 5 November, and our museums are ready to welcome Welsh families and visitors from beyond our border during the half term holidays for a truly #historichalfterm, with plenty of Halloween hullabaloo too!
There will be games, puzzles, activities and much more; plenty to entertain the little ones so the big ones can enjoy what our museums have to offer! There will also be talks, lectures, crafts, behind the scenes explorations, and conservation sessions to intrigue and delight history buffs of all ages. Keep an eye on the ‘Our Events’ page from the beginning of October to find a great event at a museum near you.
