Join us for an entertaining and informative experience at the museum, before we go out bat spotting with our bat detectors at Hammond Park. If we’re lucky, we’ll hear the bats or even see them as they hunt for their evening snack. We'll also explore the boardwalk and keep our eyes open for other nocturnal animals such as glow-worms, eels and moreporks.

Children must be five years and over and accompanied by an adult.
