National Science Week at Refreshing Memories - August 12 to 20
Dig a real fossil out and take it home.Our activity offers people of all ages the opportunity to carefully extract a real fossil or gem from a matrix. With the use of some simple tools you can dig until you see a sign of something different and you then brush and dig until it comes free to be identified. With any luck you will be holding a 60 million year old fossil in your hand or some lovely semi-precious stones. Once you clean it up you can try to identify it using the charts provided and label your find. When you are finished you get to take your find home as part of your own collection.
This activity is fun for children as young as 4 and equally as much fun for people of all ages.
The fossil dig takes about 20 minutes and there is no need to book.
We will be open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 11am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday during Science Week.
