The Palace House Summer of Science will run from Saturday 20th July – Sunday 1st September, this programme of family activities will centre around our George Stubbs exhibition and will draw on the themes of science, biology, the human body, animal bodies and  comparative anatomy. 

Activities will include a ‘lab’ within the George Stubbs exhibition where children will be encouraged to discover more about George Stubbs in his ‘studio-lab’, they can also get involved by putting on a white coat, measuring bones and sketching skulls! 

The Summer of Science will continue upstairs in our Thompson Gallery where families can make their way around our carousel of Science Stations and learn more about the anatomy and how our bodies work! 

Exciting workshops exploring the science of the equine world will be held once a week throughout the 6 week summer holidays where future scientists will be able to get hands on in a lab environment!
