Children got creative and then took a step back in time during two separate events held at Ely Museum.
A graffiti art workshop for 10-14-year-olds on Wednesday (April 11) saw 15 young people spending four hours with international graffiti artist Si Mitchell.
After being inspired to draw they turned their ideas into pieces of graffiti art.
“The day was extremely popular, with great enthusiasm from all the participants,” said curator Ellie Hughes.
“This was a different sort of activity for us. It was a trial activity for older children and we are delighted that it was so popular.”
Then, on Thursday (April 12), Vikings invaded Ely Museum for a holiday activity for five to 11-year-olds.
They made helmets and boats and Viking beads as well as dressing up and learning about Viking clothing, accessories and weaponry from a Viking re-enactor.
