Once you have ordered your pack you can come to the museum on either the 26th or 27th of October to collect, any time during our opening hours. Please bring along your order number so we can check you off our list.

We often use re-purposed materials in our packs and as such there will be slight variations between packs. We use recycled materials to keep the pack costs down for you and the planet.
Children should be supervised at all times when carrying out the activities, packs may contain small parts unsuitable for young children.
