Are you ready to become Guardians of the museum?
Just for kids
There is plenty of amusement for children including Pirate Treasure Trails, gallery quiz sheets and jigsaw puzzles, both fun and educational. You can also dress up as a pirate and enjoy the hands on archaeology
A new hands-on experience for children has been introduced recently at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery. Featuring various recreated objects including a skull, whale sick, Roman artefacts, reindeer skin, a meteorite, dinosaur skin and a mammoth tusk amongst many others, the experience encourages children and families to become archaeologists and explorers. The facility, supported with grant assistance from CyMAL and the Friends of Tenby Museum, was designed and built by Alan Morgan of Riveting Designs.
The museum also runs a CBBC Relic Trail (As seen on television).
If you are a child who attends a Pembrokeshire School admission to the museum is free of charge!
The museum also offers storytelling sessions, both for schools and groups (schedule to be arranged – call the museum for details), available in both English and Welsh. There are also special events such as handling sessions as part of National Archaeology Day and events as part of the Big Draw as well as Christmas events for schools and art shows for educational establishments.
The museum follows the Kids in Museum manifesto and prides itself on being Family Friendly.
