Search the galleries of Weston Museum in its first ever “Leave It Where You Found It” Scavenger Hunt, finding autumnal themed items such as leaves, pine cones and berries.
Costs 50p per entry and includes entry to the Museum Autumn Competition.
The idea behind “Leave It Where You Found It” is to encourage people to leave behind the berries, seeds, pine cones and leaves you might find on a nature walk, to help animals preparing for hibernation. It is also tailored from the concept of leaving places “better than where you found them”.
Visit Weston Museum after the doors are closed to hear some creepy folk stories and explore the galleries to complete the exclusive Halloween trail.
Tickets cost £5.00 per child (with 1 free accompanying adult)
