Picture a future for British nature this Easter holidays! As part of The Wild Escape project, led by Art Fund, Horsham Museum invites you to learn and create through the Wild Escape Trail and Wild Worlds Activity that runs from 4th-7th & 11th-14th April 2023.

We encourage children to take part in our FREE Wild Escape Trail of the museum, starting on 1st April; to discover and learn about British wildlife featuring in our collection. You can also choose a favourite animal to create a picture of in The Wild Worlds Activity to celebrate Earth Day 2023.

For the Wild Worlds Activity, we will be creating paper collage pictures of animals and their habitats. You’ll also have the opportunity to submit your artwork for the museum to display on Earth Day 2023, Saturday 22nd April.

Due to the popularity of our previous family activity events, we have introduced an online booking system. Book an arrival slot to arrive in and enjoy an hour or so to create your artwork!

The Wild Escape initiative is aimed at children ages 7-11, but we encourage children of all ages to take part.

Please note that all children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

We welcome visitors with buggies but not all doorways are accessible with a buggy in the museum, so we suggest these are left at the designated buggy area outside the activity room.

The activity will be taking place in the Hurst room, where there is wheelchair access.

Sessions are run by knowledgeable volunteers.
