Easter Holiday Workshop

Easter is jam packed full of free family activities at Cumbria’s Museum of Military Life!

We have two free holiday workshops coming up over the Easter period. On the 6th of April we will be joining forces with military historian John Sadler to bring history to life. Not only will you get to explore living history with an expert, but you will also have the opportunity to handle some real historical artefacts.

Secondly, at our arts and crafts session on the 13th of April, we will be recycling egg cartons and cardboard into our own mini tank models. Want to join this activity from home? You can! There are multiple ways to join us! Follow our tiktok @cumbriasmoml or watch on Facebook from 11.00am to join us on the day and follow along at your own pace.

Resources will be provided for those who join us in person, and for those at home all that is needed is egg cartons, glue or Sellotape, and a device to watch us from.

Tag us in a photo of your activity to enter our competition to win a copy of Nick Sharratt’s brand new Super Silly Museums for free. You can also complete our free Easter bunny hunt running over the Easter holidays in the museum for another chance to win!

Full details and T’s and C’s available at Cumbriasmuseumofmilitraylife.org/eastertandc
