'The Art Of Self Expression; Facial Hair and Tattoos Through The Ages' Temporary Exhibition @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

Weston Museum’s exciting new temporary exhibition on facial hair and tattoos through the ages features both historical and modern examples of self expression. A photographer has been out capturing some local faces to feature amongst the range of beards, mustaches and body art.

Come along and compare your own styles and artwork with others from across the area and across time!

The exhibition is free entry and will be open during standard museum opening times of 10am – 5pm, 7 days a week. There will also be a variety of activities and events for all ages running alongside the exhibition, with talks for those interested in learning more and pirate themed activities for families!

Lego Workshops – Pirates! @ Weston Museum
Mar 31 @ 10:30 – 16:00

2 lego pirates

Come along to a family friendly lego workshop, led by the team from Gincandescence, who are brilliant with lego building. Get inspired by our temporary exhibition focussing on beards and tattoos and create your own pirate scene; with ships, desert islands, buried treasure or even parrots!

Workshops last for one hour at timed slots throughout the day (on both Saturday and Sunday); tickets should be bought in advance, as numbers are limited. You can do this from Saturday 27th January onwards by popping in to our museum reception or by giving us a call (you can pay by card over the phone).
Ticket costs are £3 per child, £5 for 2 children together.

As per lego advice, we are accepting children of age 4 and up (children aged just under 4 can attend too, but only if the parent or carer stays with them to supervise closely. Children under 3 will unfortunately not be able to take part on this occasion). Please be aware that adults will need to stay within earshot/sight of children, but are free to enjoy the café by sitting at one of the tables just next to the Learning Space (enjoy a peaceful cuppa whilst your children enjoy some lego building!).

Available slot times –
11:30 – 12:30
