The Infirmary Medical Museum will be hosting a series of family-friendly activities throughout the school Easter holidays.
Young visitors will be able to make Easter cards and egg-shaped, cardboard stained glass windows, as well as joining an Easter egg trail around the museum. In addition to the craft activities, the Infirmary will be staging a chocolate quiz as part of Worcester’s Chocolate Day.
Participants can join in with the quiz, which is also available online at facebook.com/TheInfirmaryWorcester, between April 12 and 16. Answers will be revealed online on April 17.
Carol Bowsher, Learning and Access Officer at the Infirmary, says: “We are really excited to be holding these Easter activity days. We know children love to make things, and we really enjoy welcoming them to the museum.”
Visitors over the two days will also have the chance to explore the museum, which is situated on the site of one of England’s oldest infirmaries, and take part in interactive exhibits.
Behind the scenes historical tours will run on Wednesday 16, at 11am and 12noon, with visitors invited to discover the connection between the building and the British Medical Association and explore parts of the site which are not always open to the public.
The tours are free to join, with donations welcome, and there will be a small charge for craft activities.
