Dorset County Museum will be running two different events for children during half term week. Both are completely free thanks to generous sponsorship from Battens Solicitors through its Charitable Trust.
On Tuesday 19th February the brand new Dino Club has its first session. This club has been specially designed for children aged 7 and under and each session will have a different dinosaur as its theme. This week’s dinosaur is the Megalosaurus – a Jurassic dinosaur up to 9m long which walked on two legs, and had sharp teeth and claws. The activities will include making giant megalosaurus footprints. Dino Club runs from 10.30am to 11.30am and only takes place in the school holidays.
On Wednesday 20th February there is a family activity from 10.30am to 12.00pm. Everyone is welcome and the theme is ‘Five things you didn’t think you could do in a museum!’ These include making new labels for exhibits, rearranging a display case and dressing up some of the statues. Both events are free, and there’s no need to book – just turn up on the day.
