Get creative with crochet, explore our collections and take your last chance to see the ‘Fortitude’ exhibition at our July Museum Late.

Curator tour

Contemplate the emotive stories shared in exhibition ‘Fortitude: healthcare workers’ experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic’ with a curator’s introduction at 6pm or 7pm. Discover the story behind creating the exhibition and highlights from the contributions. The exhibition will close in person on 18 July.

Craft café – crochet special

Take a breath after exploring the exhibition and stop by our craft café to try your hand at crochet and create your own a soft-toy coronavirus: no experience necessary! Experienced crocheters welcome, too, with materials provided to make and keep your own mini-virus. If yarn-wrangling isn’t your thing you can also have a go at creating origami butterflies. Both activities are inspired by the creative and mindful activities healthcare workers and many others used to look after their own wellbeing during the pandemic and in the years since.

All materials and instructions provided and refreshments will be available in the café.

Explore the museum after hours

While visiting the museum you will also have the opportunity to discover our fascinating Treasures Room of medical implements, ceremonial silver and the 17th century Prujean chest of surgical tools. Plus, enjoy the fine art, and other collections on display around the building.
