Visitors to The Beacon Museum in Whitehaven can immerse themselves in the Roman era from the end of this month.

‘Are We There Yet?’ runs from 29 April until 1 October and is a chance to get hands on with lots of interactive exhibits and special activities.

Guest can discover what the Romans did for Cumbria – who were they and what did they leave behind for us?

They can also create a mosaic, hear Roman tales at the Roundhouse, dress the part, or complete a Roman-themed trail that explores the family attraction.

During the May half term and summer holidays, the museum will host a range of extra activities for families – check The Beacon's website for details.

The Beacon Museum is a family-friendly museum on Whitehaven’s picturesque harbour in west Cumbria. It has four floors of interactive exhibits, plus fascinating artefacts from the local area. Book tickets by visiting the website or calling 01946 592302.
