Make Thursday a Stephenson day. Bring your youngsters down to the museum on Thursday during the autumn half term holiday where they can explore our wonderful collection of vintage trains. We also have loads of craft activities for them to try their hand at and where they can let their imagination run riot. This week, we're making box buses, inspired by the vintage buses that will be running free trips to Dial Cottage.

Suitable for ages 3-7 years.
