Join us as we explore one of our fun weekly themes through interactive storytelling, activities, singing and crafts.

Wacky Wednesday is a shared experience perfect for pre-school children and their carers and includes opportunities to take a close look at different themes from the museum which they can relate to their own lives.

Upcoming themes:

Wed 5 June – Brass bands
Wed 12 June – Miners are Fathers too
Wed 19 June – Pit Ponies
Wed 26 June – Colliery Birds
Wed 3 July – Colliery Cats
Wed 10 July – Mining and Nature

Wacky Wednesday is exclusively for children under 5 years only. Booking is essential to guarantee your child’s place. Adults do not need to pre-book their place. Please note all children must be accompanied by a maximum of two adults. 

After Wacky Wednesday you can explore our Little Diggers soft play area, find the rabbit in Parkinson’s Yard, tunnel in the Technology Gallery or visit our Victorian Gallery. Watch out for the cute canaries, the ponies in our new discovery centre and if you’re ready for a ‘pitstop’ there’s Caphouse Café with our Mini Miners Lunch bags or visit the adventure play area and bring a picnic.
