There is lots going on for children and families at Mill Green Museum and the Roman Baths. This is especially true during school holidays when there are many drop-in workshops for children aged 4+.
Adults are not forgotten with frequent craft demonstrations and special event days at the weekends. With limited parking at Mill Green, we encourage visitors to consider using the bus service - there is a bus stop at the top of the footpath that leads to Mill Green. It's better for the environment and children love catching a bus for a day out!
School Holiday Activities
Activity times 10am, 11.15am, 1.15pm and 2.30pm. They last for one hour. No booking required, just come along, but please come at the start of the session as you'll need a full hour to make your creations. Suitable for age 4+. Children must have a parent or guardian on the premises at all times during their visit unless otherwise stated. We have tea and coffee facilities for parents and grandparents to enjoy. Children like our hot chocolate, too!
