Join the family monster hunt at Ashford Museum this half-term!
This Halloween, families will be able to search for strange creatures and spooky spectres at Ashford Museum as part of the national Eerie-on-Sea Monster Museum Tour, organised by Kids in Museums and Walker Books. The fun, family trail celebrates the release of the latest book in the Eerie-on-Sea Mysteries series: Mermedusa by Thomas Taylor.
In the basement of the Grand Nautilus Hotel, Herbert Lemon is plagued by unsettling dreams. It’s Midwinter once again, and Eerie-on-Sea has been invaded by a famous podcast crew, determined to uncover all the secrets of Eerie, especially the famous legend of the fearsome Malamander. But Herbie and Violet are faced with a new mystery, one that threatens to shake the town to its very core. Is the Deepest Secret of Eerie-on-Sea about to be revealed?
Over 50 museums around the UK will be taking part over the October half-term and encouraging families to explore their local museum.
The activity will run at Ashford Museum from 11am to 2pm, Tuesday to Saturday, 17 October to 28 October 2023.
Pick up a free activity sheet to take part. Can you spot all the monsters of the mysterious seaside town of Eerie-on-Sea? Complete the trail and get a free Eerie-on-Sea bookmark and sticker!
Families will also have the chance to enter a national prize draw competition. Kids in Museums is inviting families to design their own mythical monster or magical creature and share it on social media for a chance to win a bundle of all five books in the Eerie-on-Sea series.
