Wonderfolk at Woodhorn

Mon 24th July- Sun 3rd Sep

Unearth the Wonderfolk at Woodhorn Museum this summer

Join us on an exciting and interactive quest to unearth the lost world of the Wonderfolk.

Deep beneath the trees and fallen leaves exists a forgotten land inhabited by magical and mythical creatures.
Professor Parkyr, a world expert in unexplained underground lifeforms, has been recruited to Woodhorn to investigate the existence of the Wonderfolk.  From initial findings, the Professor has discovered a higher than normal level of activity below the ground and has unearthed some very surprising findings.

The Professor needs helpers to aid with searching for the Wonderfolk. Apparently they are friendly and may be hidden underground among the coal seams.

Come and visit the Museum of the Wonderfolk and meet the Professor. Take part in a make and take activity to create a blending in hat and pick up your magical lantern* - your mission is to track down and uncover the stories and secrets of the Wonderfolk.

Everyone is welcome to join in this family activity, but it is particularly suitable for children over the age of five.
* The entire experience (indoors and out) lasts about an hour-and-a-half, with the quest (lantern tour) lasting approx. 30-40 mins.  
At busy times, if you have not booked as party of 10, you may be asked to join another group.
