Learn how weather used to be recorded at the King’s Observatory. Make your own mini ‘weather station’ to carry out your own observations!
Using a mix of real and replica historical objects from the museum’s handling collection, our workshops provide families with a hands on experience where they learn more about the history of the local area, develop new skills by having a go at arts and craft activities spending quality time together.
Our workshops are led by our Learning Officer, Vicky, who has over fifteen years of experience of working with families and has an Enhanced DBS check.
Workshops are aimed at children aged 5-11 years old. For children aged 11 and over, we can make the activities more challenging. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. If younger siblings (under 5s) are coming and not taking part in the main craft activity, we can provide colouring materials for them free of charge, as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials. When booking, please book places for adults and under 5s, as this lets us know how many chairs we need to put out for the workshop.
