Squirrel, Badger, Owl and Rabbit all live in homes in the forest. They would love to meet you! Come along to help build their homes and listen to their stories.
The Story Den is a storytelling and play session for children. Using our den-making kit, children will become little architects, meeting one of our adorable woodland characters and helping to build a home for them. There’ll be songs, magical lights and lots of sensory objects to play with along the way. The story lasts around half an hour, with another half an hour for free play in the den.
The Story Den is recommended for children aged 2 to 5, but do be in touch if you’d like to bring a younger child along. Places are free but booking is advised to avoid disappointment on the day. Drop-ins are also very welcome in case spaces become available on the morning. Please be aware that buggy parking at the Museum is outside in our yard area. Fold-up buggies can be kept inside our Learning Room, which is down a short flight of stairs. We look forward to seeing you and please don’t hesitate to be in touch with our Learning Manager, Emma, on email@example.com if you have any questions.
There are places for up to six children and accompanying adults per session; please note that adults may not all be able to join the children inside the den at one time, but everyone is welcome to participate in the session.
