Our woodland offers the perfect place to be an explorer, play hide-and-seek, get creative, have a picnic or simply relax and enjoy nature! We have three autumn-inspired, hands-on activities at Wheal Martyn this half-term, keeping you busy and active outdoors. All free with museum entrance fee/annual return pass.

  • Clay Modelling in Nature – create your own clay insect, animal, plant or landscape using objects in the woods to decorate. Leave it in our woodland gallery or take it home to share. Clay available on entering the museum.
  • A Picture Tells A Thousand Stories – get inspired by our outdoor exhibition of art and unleash your own stories and creative writing! Worksheet available on entering the museum.
  • Woodland Pumpkin Trail – track down our hidden pumpkins and crack the secret code. Trail sheet available on entering the museum.
