Easter happenings at city museums


There’s plenty going on for younger visitors this Easter at the Bath & North East Somerset Council-run Roman Baths, Fashion Museum and Victoria Gallery.

The Great Bath – part of the Roman bathing complex built around the thermal waters.

Kids can get ready for spring by making a mini Roman garden, design colourful geometric patterns based on Eighties fashions, and create some arty Easter cards and collages to take home.

Councillor Paul Myers, (Conservative Midsomer Norton Redfield) cabinet member for Economic and Community Regeneration, said: “There are some brilliant activities taking place in our museums over Easter, and all are free for residents with a Discovery Card. We hope local families will be inspired to visit, and discover – or rediscover – the wonderful museums on their doorstep.”
