Explore! Elgin Musuem - children's guide

As part of our 2017 HLF-funded project, we created an exciting children’s activity book and town centre trail, “Explore! Elgin Museum”. It can be downloaded (3mb pdf) or you can pick up a free copy on your next visit to the museum – not only can you explore where some of our objects were originally found but you can also design your own museum!
