Welsh Museums Festival
Here we go again!
Welsh Museums Festival is back this coming October, and it’s bigger than ever, with two whole weeks of special events and activities for all ages at museums across Wales, many of them FREE. This year’s Festival runs from Saturday 22 October until Sunday 6 November, so that our museums can welcome Welsh families and visitors from beyond our border over their respective half term holidays for a truly #historichalfterm and plenty of Halloween hullabaloo too!
There are dragons to find, riddles to solve, scintillating science events, crafts to make and time travel to delight younger visitors, and a special Instagram photo competition just for teens. But it’s not all about our younger visitors. There are also talks, lectures, crafts, behind the scenes explorations, and conservation sessions to intrigue and delight history buffs of all ages.
Keep an eye our on the ‘Our Events’ page from beginning of October to find a great event at one of Wales’ wonderful museums.
