Saffron Walden Museum this February half-term

If you are looking for something to do with the kids this February half term how about a trip to Saffron Walden’s Museum. 

It’s very popular for adults and children, as the exhibits are very well presented and varied, with one of the most popular exhibits being the woolly mammoth’s tusk, even for as children as young as two find it an interesting place to explore. 

What is there to see at the Saffron Walden Museum?

Other exhibits include insects and butterflies, Egyptian mummies, fossils - children feel free to roam and enjoy the exhibition with the help of friendly and accommodating staff when needed. Some visitors to the Saffron Walden Museum have even compared it to a downscaled version of the London’s Natural History Museum because of its fantastic local artefacts and a wide range of other items, praise indeed for our perfectly formed local Saffron Walden Museum. 

Explore the farming history of North-West Essex from 29 Jan - 29 July 2018

If you are interested in some of Essex’s rich history then their current exhibition is based on Agriculture in North-West Essex, from traditions used in the past to the present day. Visitors will be able to see the difference in farming from their contemporary photographs and stories from local people as well as objects and photographs from the past. 

What other exhibits are there at the Saffron Walden Museum?

The Saffron Walden Museum has plenty of other exhibits to explore, including Ancient cultures, Archeology, Ceramics and Glass, Costumes and Textiles, Furniture and Woodwork, Geology, Natural History, Social and Local History and World Cultures.
