Description :

We wanted to do a treasure hunt but all the clues are secret codes!  Become a spy and help us 'crack' these secret messages.

A secret way of writing messages is called a cipher and in this workshop we'll introduce you to a simple cipher called a Caesar cipher (named after the Roman general, Julius Caesar, who used it to send secret military messages!).

You will construct a cipher wheel out of card and use this to 'break' secret messages to reveal the location of the hidden eggs.

This workshop is aimed at children aged 7-11 years.

This workshop session is priced at £14 per participant and includes entry to the museum!

For participants under the age of 14, we require an accompanying adult to attend the workshop alongside them. Accompanying adult tickets can be purchased for the normal museum entry price of £12.
