Events & Activities

Family Activities and Workshops

We run regular family activities, crafts and storytimes during school holidays, see below for details on upcoming sessions.
There is usually no need to pre-book, but do check! Even when we don’t have special sessions there’s always plenty to keep little (and not so little) ones entertained at the museum, so if you’re stuck for what to do come along and have fun in our children’s area, playing with the old fashioned games or doing a museum trail.

May Half-Term Craft Workshops

Teddy’s Tea Party Crafts
Wednesday 29 May, 10am-12noon & 1.30-3.30pm
£2 per child
Join us for our teddy tea party themed crafts! Make teddy bear masks, ears and pictures, cup cake mobiles, paper teacups and saucers, a mosaic teapot coaster and more. Please bring your favourite bear along to join in the fun!

All workshops are suitable for children 4-10 years. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
There is no need to book. However, due to limited space the sessions operate on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a seat for every child.

Museum Trails

Why not try one of our ever popular free search hunts around the museum, currently we have:

‘Going on a Bear Hunt!’
We have lots of cute bears visiting us – can you find them to win a special sticker?

Other Forthcoming Events

Why not try one of the talks and lectures organised jointly by The Friends and RLHRS which we have at Rutland County Museum and Oakham Castle.
Alternatively you might like to watch a film in the unique atmosphere of our Riding School.
