After the HUUGE success of our first Home Educator Day, we’re thrilled to announce that our second is happening 19 December!
We know what you’re thinking…what exactly is a Home Educator Day? Well, we’ll tell you!
On these days, we limit ticket numbers to the general public and no other educational groups are booked in for the day, so you and your family can explore the galleries and take part in our unique, educational shows and activities.
It’s a great opportunity for Home Educator families to visit us at a quieter time (as we don’t take any school bookings on this day) and to take part in some of our school programmes developed for pupils in Years 1 through to Year 6 (i.e. 5-11yrs).
As well as the activities outlined below, there are 3 galleries for you to explore as well as The Burrow for under 7s with tons of hands-on exhibits!

Hibernation Trail – If you can’t beat winter – sleep through it!
Available to pick up all day
Age range: 5yrs+, but anyone is welcome to do the trail!
Hibernation is a bear’s way of saying, “I’m not lazy, I’m just energy efficient.”
In other words, hibernation is a bear’s way of taking a long winter nap to save energy and avoid the cold weather. But don’t worry, bears are still dreaming about food while they’re hibernating. So when they wake up, they’re ready to eat! Follow the trail and discover some more sleepy creatures!
