The Railway Garden

Learn about environmental sustainability with free family-friendly activities every day during the Easter school holiday.

We're open every day from Friday 29 March – Sunday 14 April 2024 for the Easter holidays.

This Easter we're exploring biodiversity with a range of self-led and themed activities and workshops for families to enjoy. All of these are free and so is museum admission. Donations are hugely appreciated.

  • Monday 8 April: Brightwood Forest School—seed bombs

Workshops are free but places are limited, on a first come first served basis. Please ask at the Welcome Desk on arrival.

Coming soon: Our new garden

Later this year we will unveil our new landscaped garden called the Railway Garden, which will bring our whole museum site to life.

Created as part of our masterplan, this new outdoor space will support volunteering for local communities and create a place for our visitors to connect with nature.
