Activities to do at home

The Pitt Rivers Museum has been running workshops for families for more than twenty five years. In that time we’ve created all sorts of wonderful craft activities inspired by the Museum’s collections. Here are some tried and tested projects for you to make at home. We hope you enjoy them!
