Colchester: One Town, Three Museums

Artist Alison Stockmarr making Face Books at Hollytrees Museum

There is so much to do at Colchester Museums this summer; with the new Castle displays and a variety of events it couldn’t be a better time to visit and use the Explorer Passport!

Meet a Medieval NunTuesdays are Castle event days, most of these are storyteller events (free after Castle admission) but we also have the Castle Archery School on 18th August (see for prices)

Wednesdays are craft event days at Hollytrees Museum. Join us for kite-making, pop-up poems, stencil postcards and periscopes. These fun, arty activities are £3 per person.

Thursdays are Go Live! days at the Natural History Museum in Colchester. See snakes, giant insects, lizards, parrots, meerkats and more! £3 per person but 2s and under are free! If fossils are more your thing we have a FREE Fantastic Fossil event on 12th August where you can hold a meteorite, touch a mammoth tooth and even have your own fossil finds identified by an expert!

For just £10 the cardholder can attend any of the events at Hollytrees and the Natural History Museum this summer (if places are available).
