An Easter Parade of crafts for children at Scarborough's museums

Easter bonnets and bouquets, dinosaur egg hunts and dinosaur safaris, and pom-pom chicks will be part of the Easter celebrations from Scarborough Museums Trust.

The Trust is providing its usual school holiday activities for children, but with an Easter twist.

Each weekday throughout the school holidays, including the bank holidays (but not Monday 8th April), there will be creative drop-in activities from 11am to 4pm for all the family at the Trust’s two venues: Scarborough Art Gallery and the Rotunda, the William Smith Museum of Geology.

And on Friday 12 April, the Trust’s resident geologist and Head of Public Programmes, Will Watts, will lead 45-minute guided dinosaur safaris around the Rotunda, starting at 11am and 2pm. The tours will explore the scientific background to the current exhibition Scarborough’s Lost Dinosaurs. Numbers are limited, so booking is highly recommended on 01723 353665.

All the activities are included in the standard entrance fee of £2 (Scarborough Art Gallery) and £4.50 (Rotunda) – under-18s are free. Regular visitors can also benefit from an Open Return Ticket, which costs £9 and gives free entry to both venues for a year.
