Venue Indoor

With lots going on for families throughout the year, the Wilson is a great all-weather destination for all ages. A particular highlight for young families is the children’s stay and play area and baby changing facilities.

The venue is a great day out with free entry and specialist events throughout the year.

Local mum Cheryl says: “There is a lovely play area with old fashioned dolls house, dressing up, puzzles, tea sets, jenga etc etc. There are also children’s trails available to pick up for free to follow around the museum and plenty of colouring in from the art cart.”

Opening times are Monday – Wednesday, Friday – Saturday 9:30am – 5:15pm and Sunday 11am – 4pm.
Thursday from 9:30am – 7:45pm.
