Fleetwood Museum is open fully again this summer and offering a programme of events and activities to keep families busy over the holidays. 

This summer,our popular craft sessions will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:30-12:30 and 13:30-14:30, for children aged 4-11.  Places are FREE but must be booked in advance by calling the museum, and children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  You will be able to create dangly fish, stick puppets, upcycled eggheads, a Fishermen’s Friends game, bottle fish, and an octopus garden!  Bev Rawstron is the museum volunteer who puts the programme together – “it’s a real team effort to create the free craft offer but they always prove to be popular – we hope to see plenty of Fleetwood families again this summer!’.

On Wednesday 3rd August Phil Brown from Fleetwood Town Football club will be talking about the history of Fleetwood Town FC (14:00 – no need to book just turn up), and our popular ‘Songs at the Museum’ folk session will be running on Friday 26th August.

All Fleetwood residents can also visit the museum for free during the summer holidays.  Ben Whittaker (museum manager) says “We always make the museum free entry on Tram Sunday in July, but we are pleased to be able to offer all Fleetwood households a free visit during the summer holidays – just bring proof of address.  It is a nice way to say thank-you for the wonderful support that we get from Fleetwood residents.”

As well as the craft sessions, there is always plenty for families to do at the museum – from fun interactives to gallery trails.  And visitors will also get a chance to see the new displays for this year – including the new and revamped Deep-Sea gallery, and the amazing Fish Queen gown and crown which only went in display in June.
