There's so much to do this Christmas at the Crags. Once again, Santa will be with us with an early Christmas gift for all the children. Our Christmas trail will be on again, and our Stone Age Story Teller will host a special Christmas story time.
Meet Santa in his Grotto
Santa will be joining us every weekend this Christmas.
He's been busy making a list, then checking it twice, and he's going to meet everyone whether they've been naughty or nice!
Book your timeslot, and while you're waiting for your moment with Santa, enjoy doing some festive crafts in our education rooms.
Our Head Elf will call you through when it's time to meet the big guy, and every child will receive a Christmas gift to take home with them.
Every weekend from Saturday 25th November until Sunday 17th December.
Ice Age Animals Trail
Rudolf and his ice age friends are hidden around the site this Christmas. Can you help find them?
Each of the 7 animals will have a secret letter that spells a festive word. Find them all and discover the word to claim your treat from reception.
Trail sheets are available to purchase from the museum reception during our normal opening hours. No booking necessary.
The trail will begin on the same weekend as Santa arrives.
An Abominable Adventure
The Abominable Snowman is real, and we're expecting him to be hiding in Robin Hood Cave this Christmas!
Children and adults are invited to join us in Robin Hood Cave for a magical Christmas experience led by our Ice Age guide. Then one by one, you'll venture further into the cave where you'll meet the Abominable Snowman himself! Make sure you've got your camera ready, because you're going to want to prove to everyone he really does exist.
The adventure is expected to last 60 - 75 minutes including a walk to the cave and due to health and safety restrictions of the cave only those over 5 can take part.
