If you are looking for a free but quality day out and need fun activities to entertain the family, then you will love Castleford Museum.

The museum has many fabulous activities for families.

Have fun learning about an Iron Chariot; the Romans in Castleford; rugby, marbles, mining and the glass and ceramics industries.

Try on some Roman armour, play with chariot models, have a tea party, and try out a pair of miner’s clogs.

You can also take part in free creative activities.

Phew…if that doesn’t tire them out, what will?
