Stan and Mabel, Paul Rissmann's madcap musical adventure based on the magical picture-book story telling the story of a dog, a cat and a bunch of animal friends who end up in Italy auditioning for the Greatest Orchestra in the World. Presented with big-screen images and other musical pieces to introduce the orchestra! Audience participation guaranteed! It’s a joy.
Drop-in to the museum to take a closer look at the mysterious flint mace head found in the ancient Stone Age passage tomb of Knowth Co. Meath and make your own mace head souvenir to take home! Recommended age: 8+
The Ardgillan Fairies have been weaving their magic around the park, creating towers and more new houses. Our fairy party will give children the chance to learn about the fairies and see where they live. They can even make a wish in the Fairy Grove.
Inspired by the collection and our exhibitions, these workshops are suitable for tiny tots (about 18 months) up to age 8. You can choose to stay for as long or as short a time as works for you.
