Free family activity

Looking for some creative family fun this Easter?

Fancy exploring colourful science and spectacular art at the museum?

Join us on a wild adventure with origami artist and Beaford’s Education Leader Caroline Preston. Discover the local birds, butterflies and bugs in the museum – and decide where they fit in the Wildlife Web. Make silhouette shapes of the creatures that call North Devon home – and think about what they need for the future.

Tag your own wildlife sightings on our map of North Devon and add your silhouette creations to our wildlife showcase.
