16 May REACH FOR THE STARS WITH COLCHESTER MUSEUMS!
If you’re looking for some out of this world inspiring activities to keep your family occupied this May half term, look no further than Colchester Museums.
The team have planned a great range of events designed to leave the children starry-eyed across its three sites: Colchester Castle; Hollytrees Museum, and the Natural History Museum.
Wonder at the stars and see the constellations unfold in a wonderful Planetarium experience at Colchester Castle; get crafty and create your own star mobile at Hollytrees Museum inspired by the famous Colchester nursery rhyme, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and even create your very own Monster at the Natural History Museum!
Councillor Mark Cory, Leader of Colchester Borough Council, said: “Colchester Museums have some amazing events planned to help children learn more about constellations and space, this school holiday.
“From Roman beliefs about stars, to a famous local nursery rhyme, take a tour of the universe with the team, this half term, and help the children learn whilst having fun! If you’re local, don’t forget to purchase a Resident Pass to the Castle if you haven’t already!”
