Summer holiday free activities for all ages

There are only a few days left to enjoy our summer activities! We’re open until Sunday from 1-4pm, and it’s free to come in.

Use our Eye-Spy Trails to spot unusual details hidden in the exhibits – and look up for a trip to the British Museum!

Come and find out about the Curious Tale of the Panda, the Horrible History of the Scold’s Bridle, or the Puzzle of the Pagoda.

Get involved – tell us a Panda Joke, dress up as a police officer and guard the Museum. There’ll be loads of interactive ways to enjoy the collections!

In Adventure Corner, you’ll discover extraordinary objects from across the globe brought back by Macclesfield explorers. In the Gallery, every picture tells a story and now you can add your own… with a twist.
