Play and learn with your pre-schoolers at Wacky Wednesday!
Join the National Coal Mining Museum as we explore one of our fun weekly themes through interactive storytelling, activities, singing and crafts.
Wacky Wednesday is a shared experience that is perfect for pre-school children and their carers and includes opportunities to take a close look at different themes from the museum which they can relate to in their own lives.
Wacky Wednesday is exclusively for children under 5 only. Places are strictly limited so booking is essential to guarantee your child’s place. Adults do not need to pre-book their place. Please note, all children must be accompanied by a maximum of two adults.
After you’ve enjoyed your session you can explore our Little Diggers soft play area, find the rabbit in Parkinson’s Yard, tunnel in the Technology Gallery or visit our Victorian Gallery. Watch out for the cute canaries, the ponies in our discovery centre and if you’re ready for a pitstop, there’s the Caphouse Café with Mini Miners Lunch bags, or visit the adventure play area and bring a picnic.
