Museum Detectives

Children will Love becoming a Detective!

Museum Detectives is a new free, fun activity for children from Bailiffgate. It has been carefully designed to stimulate young minds and help them absorb the fascinating history of our area. 

Every child is offered on arrival a question sheet, whose 21 answers can be found by investigation around the museum. It will stimulate them to learn facts from our area, but above all have an enjoyable visit.  In family groups younger children will enjoy the mouse hunt and all the other activities in their free pack, while older ones will find the Detectives more of a challenge. 

If you wish to download a Museum Detectives sheet before arrival,  you can do so here.

Children will also enjoy wearing a free Museum Detectives badge to demonstrate their success.
