Half term transport based fun at Hastings Museum and Art Gallery

May half term at Hasting Museum and Art Gallery takes transport, vehicles and movement for its inspiration.

Kim Forward, lead councillor for culture said: “Every day throughout the half term holiday we will have free colouring and craft activities throughout the museum for those taking part to make and take home, each based on a different mode of transport.

“You can also be the first to get your hands on our new LEGO® WeDo kits as we issue a challenge to youngsters and their friends and families to get down and creative at our friends and families build day. Places are limited so please book in advance.”
