The go-to guide for you and your child
Mini Museum Explorers

Mini Museum Explorers

Sessions are at 10 – 11 am and 11:15 am – 12:15 pm.

Designed for children aged 2 1/2 to 4, along with their parents, grandparents, and carers, these monthly sessions offer an immersive journey of exploration and discovery. The July session will focus on the theme of Shapes, Patterns, and Colours.

These sessions offer a unique opportunity for children and their caregivers to bond and learn while exploring the Natural History Museum and its displays. Through storytelling, interactive play, craft activities, and science exploration, they aim to stimulate development, encourage communication, and nurture curiosity.

Parents/carers must stay with their children throughout the session. Mini Museum Explorer sessions are designed for pre-school children and their carers – they are unsuitable for larger nursery groups.

For useful information, such as how to find us and what facilities the Natural History Museum has, we recommend reading our Access information: Access at Colchester Natural History Museum
