THE Army Flying Museum in Middle Wallop is turning its attention to the world of “Creatures of the Night” this half-term.

The museum staff are hoping young visitors will be ‘bugging’ their parents to bring them along to get involved in lots of craft activities and creative trails throughout half term.

The museum is one of 50 venues taking part in the Eerie-on-Sea trail organised by Kids in Museums and Walker Books to celebrate the release of the latest book in the Eerie-on Sea mysteries series.

Visitors will be tasked with finding the faces of the five monsters hidden inside the museum’s display cases and can exchange their completed activity sheets for a bookmark and sticker. There will also be a spider trail hidden in and around the museum exhibits.

The museum is also pleased to be welcoming the Critter Clan, who will be entertaining visitors on Tuesday, October 24, giving everyone the opportunity to see nature brought to life with creatures from around the world.

Through their educational and interactive display, young visitors will be able to get up close and personal with some fascinating species and learn about their role in our ecosystem.

Popular model-making sessions are also back on Wednesday, October 25 and Saturday, October 28 to keep everyone busy and all activities throughout the week are included in the free annual pass offered by the Museum.

As an added bonus, everyone who visits the museum only needs to pay once to receive the annual pass.

Lucy Johnson, CEO of the Army Flying Museum, said: “We always enjoy offering a variety of free family activities during the school holidays as this gives visitors real added value for their annual passes and it is great to see so many people returning time and again to experience what the Museum has to offer. 

“We are so pleased to bring The Critter Clan to the museum as we know it is going to be a huge hit with lots of our younger visitors.”
