October half term

Tuesday 28 October, 11 - 3pm

Carve your own hieroglyphs!

This October half term we're thinking about all things Egyptian as we prepare for the release of Night at the Musuem 3: Secrets of the Tomb, in cinemas December 2014.

Come and learn all about the Ancient Egyptian technique of hieroglyphic writing. Decode the ancient symbols and discover their hidden meanings before deciding what secrets to carve in your very own piece of soapstone.

All materials will be provided. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.    


Whilst here take part in the special Night at the Museum Mile family trail to be in with a chance of winning a trip to LA!

Find the hieroglyph at each museum and note it down on the trail; the more of the museums you visit the more chances you have to win.
