WESTON Museum has announced its plans for a week full of family activities.

During the February half term, the Burlington Street museum will come alive with a series of activities to coincide with History Week.

There will be re-enactments with objects and activities to give visitors a feel of what it was like for our ancestors living in the UK.

Activities have been split into different time periods, and families have a chance to march with the Romans, meet the Saxons, or experience a Viking invasion, complete with live animals.

Children can also learn to weave materials as the Tudors did or find out about Victorian crime and punishment.

Museum steward Tina Bishop said: “History Week has been very popular over the past few years. It’s always great fun and we hope to see lots of children again this year.

“As always, our shop will be stocked with exciting and educational items for both children and adults, including the Horrible Histories series of books, quality replica objects and unique gifts.”

Entry to the event is free, although usual admission charges apply to the galleries.

The event will be held on February 16-20 from 10am-4pm at the museum in Burlington Street.
