Whodunit fun at the museum
It’s a case of ‘catch me if you can’, with a dash of good old fashion cops and robbers for kids at the Heist event these winter school holidays, hosted by The Workshops Rail Museum, 28 June to 13 July.
Inspired by train robberies throughout the world, Heist gives children a variety of entertainment for the holidays from hands on activities and craft to train simulators and indoor play spaces.

Experiment with hands-on activities … test the effects of water pressure or see how colour appears at different depths. Small kids can learn as they follow characters from the Octonauts on their journey through the exhibition (Octonauts trail recommended for children under 5).

The magic of wind at the Ipswich Art Gallery
Design and build your very own flying creation to test in the Wind Tubes. See your creation take flight and soar to the ceiling, and defy gravity by hovering high overhead…. or just fall to the floor. It’s all about air and invention, with a little bit of mid-air mayhem.
Make a flying creation out of everyday materials and launch it into large, clear vertical tubes of moving air. Wind Tubes is a fun, interactive exhibition for the whole family.
