Rancid remedies and ancient legends are just two of the sessions available for families at Cirencester’s Corinium Museum this half term.
The first feast on families’ agendas takes place on October 24th when the Park Street museum hosts a ‘Myths and Masks’ session. Children and their families are all invited to the drop-in activity session from 1pm-3pm, where youngsters can make a Medusa mask with waving snakes or make a mask based on Jupiter, king of the gods, with moving thunder bolts and lightning flashes. Entry is included in admission price.
‘Medicine Through Time’, held on Thursday 25th October (2 – 4pm), is a fun quiz for family teams, which will look at bizarre medical practices and strange potions throughout the years, with hands-on activities and gruelling brain teasers for all ages! Cost is included in admission, and booking is essential.
Finally, taking place on Thursday 25th October from 10.30am – 12pm, ‘Medieval Tile Making’ takes inspiration from some of the medieval clay tiles on display in the Museum from Cirencester Abbey and is for children aged 7 – 12. Learn the skills of the men who made these beautiful objects and make your own to take home. Cost: £4 or £2 to annual season ticket holders.
