When it comes to our younger visitors ‘learning through play’ is very much to the fore of KCM’s philosophy and, with that in mind, we run a range of seasonal events in and around the Museum. They happen through out the year and are specially designed for families and school groups. Those who participate get a unique, fun-filled experience of the Museum. Keep checking our Events section for updates or email us and we’ll let you know what’s coming up. Schools, please note that advance booking is essential for all these activities.
