There are even more opportunities to keep the kids entertained at Bath & North East Somerset Council’s city museums right throughout the summer holidays.
The Council-run museums are hosting a number of activities suitable for the whole family. Find out about children in Roman times at the Roman Baths, create wonderful wigs at the Fashion Museum, or let the children go colour crazy at the Victoria Art Gallery.
With all these events happening, there is something for everyone this summer, and as they are provided by Bath & North East Somerset Council, residents can enjoy many of them without worrying about the cost.
Admission to the family drop-in events at the Roman Baths and Fashion Museum is free to local residents on production of a Discovery Card. Normal entry prices apply to everyone else.
All Victoria Art Gallery events cost £3.75 per child and must be booked in advance on 01225 477244. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
