Little ones will love spending time in Wakefield Museum with Mini Moving Stories!

Wakefield Museum is getting ready to move! They are making an exciting new Library & Museum and they want families to be part of it.

Come to Wakefield Museum for an exciting summer full of fun hands-on activities for 2 to 5-year-olds, with a different theme each week.

Enjoy multi-sensory storytelling as we learn all about where we live.

All activities are free and no booking required.
