Mini Beasts

Available throughout the Spring and Summer terms.

Join us for a fun and informative session using bug-catching equipment whilst exploring Preston Park’s grounds searching for insects! Children will discuss habitats, identify and record their findings during the mini beast hunt as well as understanding how to gently and safely catch and release the creatures.


Our popular hands on workshops are led by a member of the Museum Learning Team and have a mixture of replica and original objects for your class to explore and enjoy. Plus, children get to make something to take home on the day.

Lasting approximately 1 hour (start times: 10am, 11.15am and 1pm)

Suitable for Key Stage 1 and 2.

£35 per workshop (up to 30 children), plus £1.50 museum admission charge per child (please note, this will increase to £2 from April 2018).
