Sásta! Saturday Family Events at your Museum

We have launched Sásta, our new Family Fun initiative!  Sásta is a series of drop-in fun family events which take place at least once a month on a Saturday from 2pm to 4pm. Museum facilitators will deliver hands-on, quirky workshops relating to history, archaeology, storytelling and folklore. From medieval chivalry to origami dinosaurs, each session is designed to entertain the whole family. Each drop-in activity typically lasts about 30 minutes and is included in our general admission fee: Adults €5 and children go free. Please note that this is a family offer (maximum three children per adult; additional children €1) and children must not be left unattended during the workshop. Our first session in January was all about Bridget, Ireland’s bee-charming female saint with more than 40 childrena and parents making their own St Bridget crosses. Our February session takes place on Saturday 23rd of February and is all about medieval chivalry. Museum facilitators Helena Stackpoole and Janna King will make medieval shields and Viking bracelets and you can learn a thing or two about medieval manners! Check our events section on the website or our Facebook page for more Sásta! events throughout the year. Please email education@kerrymuseum.ie or call us if you have any queries.
