Get up and close with history and enjoy a day out that will entertain both child and parent. At the end of the trip both you and your child will be experts on protozoa, fluid-preserved specimens and even taxidermy!

You can also marvel at the stunning Scottish scenery at the Cruickshank Botanic Garden, or learn how to help your local wildlife thrive at the Aberdeen Biodiversity Centre.
