Hawkesbury Regional Museum School Holiday Events – Summer 2024

School holidays are no exception to stop learning a bit. The Hawkesbury Museum in Windsor offers a set of upcoming activities starting January 2024 during the mid-summer months.

While accompanied by an adult, kids can attend not just the permanent displays in the Museum but three interactive workshops as well. Fun activities are not in short supply as all three cost $15 each and will be facilitated by an experienced museum and art educator.
