Museum of Oxford to host free Halloween activities

Published: Tuesday, 13th October 2015

Visit the Museum of Oxford this Halloween to take part in free family activities.

The museum will host the spooky events between 10.30am and 3.30pm on both Monday 26 October and Thursday 29 October 2015.

Families will be able to make puppet skeletons and brass rubbings – from a copy of artwork on the tomb of a Medieval knight – to take home with them.

They will also be able to handle real Medieval (animal) bones and find out about the 18th century Dance of Death paintings in our galleries.

The events are part of the 2015 Get Creative Family Arts Festival, which will feature thousands of music, theatre, dance and visual arts events for families across the UK until 1 November 2015.

The Family Arts Festival has entertained more than 1.2m family members since it first started in 2013. For more info, visit the Family Arts Festival website.
