February half-term events at the Museum

Make marble mazes, tuck boxes, Wonka wrappers and more...

We've got oodles of opportunities for you and your family to get creative this half-term. Find out what Roald Dahl's schooldays were like, then join in with one of our workshops. 

What's on this half-term

If your family has a sweet tooth then you'll love hearing about Roald Dahl's chocolate tasting duties at school, and designing your own chocolate bar wrapper.

Travelling more your thing? Then find out about Roald Dahl's childhood trips to Norway, then make a mini Norwegian landscape.

If you like to get your hands dirty and make something 3D, then make your own school badge out of clay - inspired by the badges from the schools Roald went to.

And if you just want a good old dollop of inspiration, then make sure you all catch Neal Zetter at the Museum. You'll be in for a side-splitting hour of interactive rhymes. 

Find out about all our February half-term workshops and events on our What's On pages.

Stretch your legs

If you're up for something a little bit different, why not join us for the second of our monthly walks this year? Kick up the leaves, breath fresh air and see the sights that inspired Roald Dahl! Join us on a guided stroll in Roald Dahl's woods, and enjoy and afternoon tea on Sunday 24 February.
