With two weeks to fill, it can be a struggle to come up with interesting things to do during the Easter break. Luckily, the folks at Imperial War Museum North have got your back, as they have a number of family activities planned. Starting on Saturday 15 February and continuing on Monday 17, Wednesday 19 and Saturday 22 February the venue will host interactive Story Seekers events that invite inquisitive minds to share the unique and exciting tales contained within the museum’s archives. Calling upon your child’s storytelling wits and imagination, these drop-in sessions allow families to get stuck into the venue’s extensive records and artefacts to uncover new and surprising facts from a multitude of powerful stories. From the gutsy folk who braved shark infested waters, to the heroic work of nurses and the brains of those who built machines of conflict – Story Seekers is a great way to inspire a young generation whilst boosting their knowledge of the First World War and the Second World War and their impact on society. Also, every day over Easter, visitors can make and share their own mini documentary with Documentary Challenge, designed by Smash TV. This interactive app guides you in creating the doc, which will be available to download afterwards.
Sat 15 Feb - Sat 22 Feb, Imperial War Museum North, Trafford Wharf Road, Trafford Park, Stretford, Manchester, M17 1TZ, Tel: 0161 836 4000, Free, 10am - 5pm
