Greek Myths and Legends


 

Explore the history of the Greeks. Discover mythical stories and legends through the Museum’s collections, then make your own Greek-style artefact. 

 

Out of school learning provides invaluable experiences which children remember for years to come. We are lucky to live close to this beautiful museum.
