Swindon Museum & Art Gallery will be running a series of exciting creative workshops throughout August.


Every Thursday in August between 10am  – 12.30pm, families will have the chance to engage with Swindon’s collections through fun and unique activities.


The series kicks off this Thursday on 3 August with a dinosaur workshop ‘Stegosaurus…Do You Think He Saw Us?’ where children can make their very own stegosaurus spikes, and design a dinosaur! This workshop is also a fantastic way for children to connect with Swindon’s prehistoric history.

On 10 August children can design a coat of arms and make their own crested china to take home in a wonderful workshop, ‘Breakfast like a King’.

On 17 August ‘Reptile Ramble’ will provide a wonderful opportunity for all those reptile fans out there to learn about our gharial and take part in some snake crafts!


‘Mummy Mania at the Museum’ will take over Swindon Museum & Art Gallery on 24 August.


And finally, on 31 August the series will wrap up with a workshop for all the budding artists out there, who will be given the opportunity to create and frame their own artwork inspired by the art exhibitions.


Each workshop is £2 per child. No booking necessary, just visit reception to purchase your ticket on arrival.
