SUMMER fun is being laid on at Kirklees museums.
Bagshaw Museum in Batley, Oakwell Hall at Birstall, Red House Museum at Gomersal and the Tolson Museum in Moldgreen are all aiming to entertain children during the summer holidays.
At Bagshaw Museum, on Tuesday, August 17, there will be an event entitled Mendhi, Mirrorwork and Moghul Moments: Following Victorian Traveller Fanny Parkes.
Youngsters will hear about the experiences of Fanny Parkes, a Victorian woman who fell in love with India.
They will make simple crafts and link her diaries to objects on display in a Colours of Asia exhibition.
On August 18, Oakwell Hall staff are offering activities featuring wildlife and nature in the grounds.
The event, With Reservations, is inspired by the fact that the world's first nature reserve was created in Yorkshire - by Charles Waterton, of Wakefield.
This fits in with Oakwell Hall's theme for its summer programme - the discoveries of Yorkshire's scientists.
On August 19, Red House Museum staff will Go Wild In The Garden.
Children will enjoy nature trails, stories, animal-inspired crafts and a gigantic `board game' in the gardens.
At the Tolson Museum on August 19, there will be a Holidays At Home exhibition.
Youngsters will discover how children entertained themselves in wartime, between 1939 and 1945.
All the activity days last from 10.30am to 12.30pm and from 2pm to 4pm and are free.
