We have a variety of fantastic family offerings this summer. From storytelling to hands-on activities, families will find something for all ages and interests at the Castle. For the first time this summer children can discover some of The Black Watch adventures and stories through a brand new Storytelling Tour. Offered on four different dates this summer, children will be encouraged to engage with the Black Watch collection through four stories linked to objects on displays.
Every Tuesday from 7 July – 11 August the Museum will host family handling and craft activities in the galleries. Take the unique opportunity to handle artefacts from the collection, learn about their history and enjoy a craft session linked to the displays and themes of the Museum.
From portraits to planes, soldiers to medal-making kids can have a go at an eclectic mix of craft ideas at the fun drop-in craft afternoons. These take place fortnightly, on a Saturday between 1-3pm between April and September.
This year the Castle and Museum will host their first ever annual summer festival on Saturday 5th September with fun for all the family, reenactors, music, crafts, tours, dressing up, face painting, cookery demonstrations and much more!
Learning and Audiences Officer Rebecca Berger said “We are thrilled to be offering new opportunities for families at the Museum this summer and excited to bring the fascinating story of The Black Watch to people of every age. There are so many fun and interesting ways to explore the history and heritage in museums!”
Join us this summer at the Castle and Museum.
