Cast an eagle eye over the Easter activities at the River & Rowing Museum!

‘Birds of Prey’, a favourite Family Fun Day, is swooping into the River & Rowing Museum again this Easter for a jaw opening, fascinating close-up with majestic hawks, eagles and even vultures!
Follow the daily Easter Egg trail with clues hiding around the Museum galleries and claim your mini Easter Egg. Enjoy our colouring competition with Easter prizes in the Museum’s Café or take part in one of our creative, spring inspired children’s workshops.

Helen Cook, Head of Learning, River & Rowing Museum:- “There’s such a variety of fun, interactive activities at the Museum this Easter! Birds of Prey is a truly unforgettable experience for the whole family; our workshops are engaging and inspire the children to get creative – and the Easter egg trail is great fun for all the family.”

Art of the Wild: Gertrude Hermes and the Natural World, a fascinating exhibition highlighting Gertrude Hermes’ stunning works, is open until 4 May. One of the most imaginative and talented wood engravers of her generation, Hermes drew much of her inspiration from nature including the River Thames.

With our riverside location on Mill Meadows, the Museum is perfectly situated for a day of family fun or a get together with friends this Easter.
