2018 ‘Walks Through History’
The Gibraltar Museum will once again be offering the very popular ‘Walks Through History’ on Wednesday mornings from 10:00-11:30 during July and August as part of the Summer Sports and Leisure Programme. As in other years, these walks are designed for children between 9 and 12 years of age.
The ‘Walks Through History’ events are designed to take children back in time by making history come alive as they tour different parts of Gibraltar and talk about its past. Some of the events will be structured as hands-on workshops where children will learn how past cultures produced ceramics, hunted for food and expressed themselves in art – having a go at it themselves of course! They will even get the chance to become archaeologists for a day, as they learn how to excavate a site from a real archaeologist!
Parents or guardians are welcome to accompany the children but there is a limit on numbers, so children will take priority. The maximum number per group is 15. Bookings will be on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, but please be aware that given the popularity of these events in past years, it is essential to pre-book via the Gibraltar Museum; unfortunately, we will NOT be able to take on children who turn up on the day without having booked beforehand.
