AN ASHINGTON museum is laying on an eclectic mix of activities this Easter.

Woodhorn Museum is gearing up for an Easter season bursting with fun for all ages including a bird of prey display, a chance to see robots, sci-fi characters and props galore at the Invasion! exhibition, a visit from the Easter bunny and the chance to create an extraordinary embroidery.

And on Saturday, April 14, there is a special treat for history lovers as the Northumberland Archives will give an introduction to researching your family history and offering exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of the strongrooms.

During the school holidays, Woodhorn is open seven days a week with extra activities laid on as well as the ever-popular permanent and temporary exhibitions including the now world famous Pitman Painters’ collection and the interactive Coal Town exhibition.

A narrow gauge railway also operates most days.

Entry to Woodhorn is free and parking is £3 for a full day.

There is a small charge for some craft activities and admission charges apply for the exhibition.
