Events and activities

We are really excited about lots of new free activities that we have introduced around the museum. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

  • Look out for new QR codes throughout the museum’s rooms. These can be scanned on your smart phone and will take you direct to on-line blogs, object films, art jigsaws and more.
  • Our Local History Gallery now features a new film about Nuneaton entertainer Larry Grayson. Larry presented TV’s Generation Game between 1978 and 1982. In this gallery, you can also measure yourself against the height of the flood waters that Nuneaton has experienced over the years.
  • Museum trails are available. 
  • Storytelling for under 5s.
  • Join us on the third Thursday of every month for storytelling between 11:15am and 11:45am. 

Be prepared to join in, make some noise and have some fun!  No need to book just drop in. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
