Family Activities at Dorking Museum


Family Activities

Held on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 2pm – 4pm; this session is ideal for families with children up to the age of 10. We encourage parents to stay with their children as they learn about part of the Museum’s collection or something new about Dorking’s history.

There is no need to pre-book; just arrive at the Museum ready to start at 2pm. All materials will be provided for you and your family.

Saturday 19th April - Easter Egg Hunt

Collect a clue sheet and try and spot all the paper eggs hidden over the Museum. Once a complete set of eggs has been found, the letters on each one will spell out a phrase. For every completed answer sheet we receive – we’ll give you an egg to take home!

Saturday 17th May – The Paintings of G.E. Collins
