Relaxed family festive fun and a visit from Father Christmas!

This Christmas we are opening up the toy box at Wakefield Museum with a relaxed day of free festive activities and crafts.

Explore the sights, smells and textures of Christmas. Get hands-on and play with toys from the past. Make your own toy to take away!

Crafts and activities are free and no booking required.

This session is designed for SEND families (but all children and young people are welcome).

There will be changes to the sensory experience in Wakefield Museum for a more relaxed visit.
