Free family-friendly pre-booked sessions at Mansfield Museum will be running throughout the school holidays each Wednesday to Saturday from Thursday 29 July to Thursday 2 September.

The only exception will be Thursday 26 August when the museum will be closed due to the Wonderfest event in Titchfield Park in Mansfield.

The Wednesday events will be more relaxed sessions, with half capacity numbers for visitors who require quieter or more accessible surroundings.

The holiday sessions, which run from 10am to 1pm, will feature crazy golf, interactive exhibits, stunning works of art, new trails and plenty of activities to keep youngsters occupied. 

They are all free but must be pre-booked via the Palace Theatre website (link opens in new window)

Cllr Stuart Richardson, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration and Growth, said: “It is fantastic news that our brilliant museum will be opening its doors again to welcome back visitors.

“The team there have been working hard behind the scenes, making changes to the museum, and developing new exhibitions and activities for families to enjoy.

“These sessions have limited places so booking is essential and we’re asking people to bear in mind that the Wednesday bookings will be for quieter sessions. Covid-secure safety measures will also remain in place.”

These include social distancing and a requirement for face masks to be worn unless exempt or under the age of 12. Hand sanitiser will be available around the museum and the Museum team will be carrying out regular cleaning throughout the sessions.

Groups will be limited to a maximum of six people and everyone will be required to check in with NHS Test and Trace and have their temperatures checked before entry. The toilets will be open for one person/family unit at a time.
