Learn about planets at Bexhill Museum


People are invited to come along to Bexhill Museum in Egerton Road on Thursday February 18 for a fun filled family workshop on the theme of ‘Planets, Stars and Space’.

The workshop is taking place from 2pm - 4pm. Children from ages 4 to 11 will be using paint to create their own pictures which they can take home.

There will also be an opportunity for them to work together to produce a mural.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. The cost of £3 per adult and £2 per child also includes admission to the museum so why not come early to see some of the exciting things on display in its galleries.

The Museum displays dinosaur footprints, stone age tools, a replica of the Easter Egg car which won the first Motor Race in Bexhill in 1902, Star Wars toys and much more.

Booking for the workshop is advisable on 01424 222058 or education@bexhillmuseum.co.uk .
