Activities free with entry to the museum

Samhain is the ancient Celtic festival which took place around the same time as modern-day Hallowe’en. So that makes it a perfect time to let the natives take over the museum for the day!

Join us for some Hallowe’en fun, the native way, at the Trimontium Museum. We’ve chased the Romans away so you can meet some of our Celtic cousins, learn about their Samhain traditions and how they influence modern day Hallowe’en customs. No pumpkins allowed- we use turnips (or bagies) to scare the ghosts away.

Nicola Agricola, our fantastic storyteller will be here on Saturday 28th to tell us more about ancient Samhain traditions in Scotland, especially the grisly and gruesome ones!

There will be craft activities, costumed characters, storytelling and Celtic face painting. Suitable for all the family
