Museums Sheffield: Weston Park is an award-winning, family-friendly museum where the visitors come first. If visiting with children, simply wind up and release, but there is plenty of treasure here for adults too. Discover the real story of Sheffield, from its geological roots to the people, politics and music that shaped the modern city.
Alongside old favourites such as Snowy the Polar Bear and Spike the Woolly Rhino, Weston Park plays host to a series of temporary exhibitions. In there now is an exciting exhibition on Roman Britain – just how did the Roman invasion change our designs and decorations?
Find them at February Freebie…
Weston Park Museum will be running a Young Curator’s workshop during February Freebie 2015. Spend the day with them and learn all about the interesting job of a Museum Curator, including how they describe and display objects in an exhibition, then have a go at curating your own toy!
The activity is suitable for children aged 8-11 years. Booking is essential so call 0114 2782686 for more information and to secure your place.
