Ages: all ages

Venue type: Indoor

The Royal Pump Room Museum is a small but full family friendly museum where you can discover Harrogate's spa history through fascinating displays. You can find out all about this charming and quirky spa town and visit the strongest sulphur well in Europe: ick! See many of the old spa treatments for yourself and find out about nasal douches, peat baths and intriguing electric therapies!
You and the kids can borrow a family backpack (available at reception) to try the mystery object game and complete the Spa Trail to discover what it was like to be a visitor a century or so ago plus find out about Harrogate's unexpected connection to Russian royalty!
Plus you can get stuck in investigating Egypt through their Ancient Egyptian treasures, try on Egyptian clothes (worth taking a camera just for that bit!), write in hieroglyphs and dress up as a super scientist and do some testing of your own! A great way to add some education into their day without them even noticing!
