Scouts and Girlguides


Scouts and Girlguides


 We run code-breaking evenings for cubs, scouts, brownies, and girlguides. The main activity is a trail around the Museum, where the kids have to work in groups to crack codes and stop a spy sending messages from the Pumping Station. We can also run activities for older or younger groups.

To book, please email info@museumoftechnology.com.
