Families are being encouraged to take part in a new ‘passport hunt’ around Leicestershire County Council’s Museums.
The county council’s unique museums showcase a range of exhibitions about our history, and now prizes are on offer for people who successfully visit multiple museums.
With Melton Carnegie Museum, Harborough Museum, Charnwood Museum, The 1620s House and Garden and Bosworth Battlefield taking part, it’s an ideal trip during the rest of the summer holidays or a weekend outing.
We are so pleased to offer this new passport hunt. Our museums are fantastic, and this is a great way to give the whole family a chance to see our exhibitions and have fun.
“I would encourage everyone to take part and enjoy our new hunt and experience our museums.
Person:Councillor Christine Radford, Leicestershire County Council cabinet member for adults and communities
Passports can be collected at any one of the five sites, and each museum has a special challenge to complete to earn a sticker for the passport.
Stickers from three museums will earn a free notebook. Complete the challenge by visiting all five museums to have a photo taken inside a special photo frame.
A range of events are taking place across museums during the rest of the summer, including the Medieval Medley Living History weekend at Bosworth Battlefield, Pride and Prejudice Open Air Theatre at The 1620s House and Garden or the We Are Harborough exhibition at Harborough Museum.
More information about each museum can be found on their websites.
