Fantastic Fossils Workshop

An interactive workshop aimed at children aged between 7-11 years old 

£3.50 per child + admission to the NMA

In Fantastic Fossils, your children will handle real life fossils from our oceans and be given the chance to imagine the animals they came from. In small groups, children will unearth their own fossils and piece them back together. After this we will investigate what we can and can’t learn from a fossil, take a closer look at how extinct animals might have looked, and finally construct our own models from our fossil skeletons.

  • Tickets bought are non refundable. Where possible please pass on your ticket to a friend.  
  • Sessions are aimed at one of three main age brackets 4-8yrs, 7-12yrs and 11-14+yrs. You are welcome to bring children  who are outside the target age groups, but please do be aware that activities will be aimed at the specified group.
  • Please do note that  families who already have a day plus pass will still need to book and pay on line if they want to join in with the event. This is the same for all activities where you have access to staff time, facilities and equipment, that would not usually be available on a general visit.
  • Children aged 3 or above booked onto the activities will cost £3.50. Infants are free of charge.
  •  We allow 1 free adult per family-  extra adults can be booked online at £6.50 each.
