Creepy Cat Trail

Creepy Cat Trail

06 October 2018 10:00 - 04 November 2018 16:30

This year we will be celebrating the acquisition of a new (we have a few!) museum ghost story after one of our visitors recounted to our curator how, as a boy, he and his family would come to stay in a little cottage in East Green for holidays (the cottage is now part of our ‘Fishing in to the Future’ gallery) and collectively they experienced the sensation of an invisible cat rubbing past their legs under the breakfast table as if mooching for a piece of kipper or plate of milk!

In tribute to this little phantom feline, we invite our younger visitors to help us find the creepy cats cowering in the spooky shadows in this fun, Halloween trek around the galleries. Grown-ups can read more about strange happenings in the museum buildings by following our “Pumpkin Trail” of eerie tales at the same time.

6th October to 4th November

Free with normal museum admission.
