Half Term Family Fun at The Atkinson

Half Term Family Fun at The Atkinson

The Atkinson is a great day out, providing excellent value for money and just 3 minutes’ walk from the station!

With so much to see and do and lots of drop in FREE activities to keep the kids entertained, The Atkinson is  a great place for families to discover, learn and play together.

Our Museum and Discover Ancient Egypt Gallery offer interactive activities, stories of shipwrecks, comics, cars and mummies galore! Open every day in the holidays from 10am – 4pm and 11am – 3pm on Sundays.

We ask you ‘Why Look at Animals’ in our new major exhibition – a fascinating look at our relationship with animals and how it has changed. Little explorers should pick up an Arty Apron (throughout half term, subject to availability) to help them delve deeper into the work and with their own tools!

Help us countdown to Sefton hosting the 146th Open Golf championship this July by visiting two exhibitions that look at the sport a little differently!

Golf and Glamour explored the ever- changing styles of the sportswear that has showcased on the famous Fairway from the blazers, top hats, corsets, and bonnets of the late nineteenth century to the more functional fashion of the present day. While Hole in One! gives you the opportunity to buy unique golfing cartoon artwork from some of our best-loved illustrators, including William Heath Robinson, Louis Wain and Lawson Wood.
