Popular Family Fun Drop In Days Return for School Break



11am – 3pm Friday 7 – Tuesday 11 February


The Scottish Maritime Museum’s popular family fun ‘make and take’ drop in sessions return this February school holiday. As usual, up to three children get free entry to the Museum with each paying adult, making it great value for money!

The ‘make and take’ crafting workshops take place at the Scottish Maritime Museum on Irvine Harbourside between 11am – 3pm on Friday 7 through to Tuesday 11 February.

Nicola Scott, Exhibitions and Events Officer at the Scottish Maritime Museum explains:

“Families can pop along at any time between 11am and 3pm. The activities change daily and take around 30 minutes to complete. That gives everyone lots of time to enjoy everything else the Museum has to offer across the Linthouse and Harbourside.

“We’ve got some great activities lined up – from making a whale and a Thaumatrope, a fun optical illusion toy popular in the 19th century, through to weaving waves on a loom in celebration of our current exhibition Woven Waves: The Jutland Tapestries.

“Children can also make a photo frame or make music with their own DIY harmonica! With so much going on, the Scottish Maritime Museum’s a great family day out for those looking for something fun and a little different this school holiday.”
