Spiders, pumpkins and a resting skeleton have joined the art works and exhibits at the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery this half-term holiday for the children’s Halloween trail.

The trail takes the children through all the rooms of the museum. As well as looking out for the creepy invaders, it also asks them to take a closer look at some of the exhibits. This includes our Cabinet of Curiosity pieces and the Peter Paul Rubens painting, “Landscape: A Storm”, which can be found in our 18th Century room. Children are also challenged to create their own pieces of art and poetry.

The trail aims to introduce children to the museum and after a couple of hours of absorption; they can let off steam at Broadway’s adventure playground, which is nearby. If they are in need of refreshments, there are plenty of places to eat and drink in Broadway too.

The Halloween trail runs until 4th November at the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery, 65 Tudor House, 65 High Street, Broadway WR127DP. Broadway Museum and Art Gallery is now open 7 days a week 10am-5pm, then 10am-4pm from Monday 29th October until 19th December.
