Calling all time travellers! Ipswich Museum has an adventure with your name on it, spanning thousands of years from all over the globe.

Watch history come to life with a jam-packed schedule of events, like arts and crafts, workshops, talks and plenty more. A family favourite has to be Mini Mammoths which takes place monthly and gives budding historians the chance to explore the archives through activities and play.
