Slime Workshop at the Tower Museum

19 February 2018

The Tower Museum was transformed into a sticky slime making lab on Saturday morning as youngsters had the chance to make their own slime.

The Slime Workshop was part of a number of events being hosted at the Tower for the Northern Ireland Science Festival and Curious Collections exhibition.

The Curious Collections exhibition is open to the public and showcases a selection of the more eccentric objects from the museum’s collections which break from the traditionally themed exhibits and provide an opportunity to view some of the unusual items that hold clues to the past.

Further events will be taking place based on the Curious Collections, starting on March 22 with a series of handling workshops for specific audiences, including the blind and partially sighted, autism friendly and dementia friendly. Suitable for ages 8+. If you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to contact the museum.

On April 19th at 7pm Curator of Ulster Museum’s Elements exhibition, Dr Mike Simms, will be looking more closely at examples of some of the unusual items in the museum with a special talk called Collecting the Curious.

Finally on May 24 at 7pm Robert Corbett will use some rarely seen images and artefacts for a special talk outlining the story of Lifeboats around the Ulster Coast, particularly Lough Foyle.

Spaces are limited for all these events and it is essential that you book in advance. For places please contact [email protected] or phone 028 71372411 to RSVP.

Teachers should note that they can also get in touch with the Tower Museum regarding education packs for schools as well as KS2 and KS3 workshops and tours.
