Six Weeks of Summer Holiday Activities

Six Weeks of Summer Holiday Activities

It is West Park Museum ….. but not as you know it. From Saturday 27th July the Museum is full of boredom-busting activities for all the family plus special events all summer long.

Come and get involved – tell us a Panda Joke, dress up and get creative, share your museum memories and design your own Lego museum of the future.

Take a fresh look at the Museum collections. In Adventure Corner, discover extraordinary objects from across the globe that have been brought back by Macclesfield explorers. In the Gallery, every picture tells a story and you can add your own … with a twist.

Use the Eye-Spy Trail to spot unusual details hidden in the exhibits.

We are looking at the collections in new ways and we want to know what you think. Many museums have objects with dark stories to tell and West Park Museum is no exception. 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.

Pandamonium – the Family Festival inspired by our much-loved Panda, takes place from 17th – 25th August. Don’t miss the Panda Picnic and a Special Events Programme that we are running with Barnaby Festival and other partners.
